A vow with no promises

Masaya Kushino

Part of the collection ‘Flowers of Fading Memory’, where Kushino sublimates ‘shoes’ into sculptural art works, skillfully incorporating tradition and modern technique, 2022.

Like the life of a flower, we bloom and wither, then sprout anew. Kushino compares our life as a flower and shoe as a vase, and finds beauty in its ephemeral trajectory. The series of works in this exhibition is an anthem for each footstep and celebrates our living life with fading memories.
