Koge series is part two of Bodies series, which are both influenced by Japanese wabi-sabi aesthetic.
In this 6-piece collection, a butoh dancer is explored from the inside. The focus is on how the physical body, organs and blood veins are built. Rather than particular shapes of organs, this collection is about the whole body system and its connection to what people see in the dance performance.
The sculptures were hand-built by Anna Aristova and fired in a wood-firing anagama style smokeless kiln with inverted flame bouri box called Sasukenei, which was built by master Masakazu Kusakabe in Portugal in 2015.
