CULT Aimee Friberg is pleased to present Masako Miki’s immersive, site-specific installation, Hyakki Yagyo, Night Parade of 100 Demons at Meridians Art Basel Miami Beach.
Comprised of felted wool sculptures, wall painting, and wall and floor vinyl, the semi-abstracted shapes achieved in bright, playful colors and textures refer to the natural world and tsukunogami (forgotten household items that become supernatural spirit entities). Her imaginary, semi-abstract sculptures bring together traditions of art, design, and craft. Miki's shapeshifters are rooted in Shinto animism, each representing constantly shifting mythologies within our segmented, plural reality. Presented as an enchanting parade for a vibrant, visionary world, Miki’s installation plays with the seemingly opposing dualities of her work: the idea of childhood play and dreams are conceptually and physically intertwined with ancient spirituality.
