This event has ended.

Art Beat Inc and hpgrp Gallery jointly present “Spuyten Duyvil,” a solo exhibition of new ceramics and drawings by Yumiko Furukawa. Furukawa is currently showing at Setouchi Triennale 2013, Japan.

In her sculptural installations Furukawa often responds to local folktales and legends. In this exhibition she presents new pottery made using indigenous Japanese pottery techniques, created based on New York legends from the collection Spooky New York: Tales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings, and Other Local Lore by S. E. Schlosser, illustrated by Paul G. Hoffman. The pottery pieces are presented in an installation with found objects and are accompanied by watercolor drawings, also responding to the tales.
Yumiko Furukawa was born in Fukushima, Japan and received an MFA and PhD from Tokyo National University of the Arts (Geidai). She is based in New York and Tokyo.
