Mariko Kusumoto’s incredibly light and voluminous work has travelled the world since her last exhibition at Micheko Gallery in 2018. We are excited to see what she has been working on and caught up with the artist to ask a few questions about her upcoming show.
What are the intentions of the exhibition in terms of the span of the work you will be showing?
I want my work to be accessible to the widest possible audience, so I will be bringing pieces that meet a range of budgets.
Could you tell me more about the title, ‘Natural Grace’ and why you chose it?
The pieces are very much inspired by and influenced by nature, so it seemed like the most fitting title.
Why do you think it’s important to show your work during MJW?
Munich is one of the world’s most sophisticated cities, and MJW attracts the leading artists and artisans, as well as the most knowledgeable art lovers and collectors, from all over the world. MJW provides a valuable opportunity to not only present my work to a truly international audience, but to also interact with the community of jewellery artists. I think it is one of the most important events for contemporary jewellers.
