Hirofumi Fujiwara’s remoted sculptures are known as Utopians, every particular person truly an amalgamation of options and cultures. Many of those characters, stated to be from a parallel world, are introduced within boundaries as they “bear witness.”
“His human sculptures, modelled from clay and plastic, stand, sit or lie within the exhibition area, reposing, clear partitions are surrounding their fragile our bodies,” Galerie Burster says of the artist. “Fujiwara’s Utopians bear witness to a romantic eager for the unreachable, with a contemplative view in the direction of the indefinite. Oscillating between the 2 worlds, Fujiwara’s sculptures bear references from the Japanese in addition to the European Western tradition. They appear youthful and but ageless, androgynous and indifferent from all stereotypes – remoted from this world, but resting within the very second, anchored in pure just-being.”
