Natsuko Uchino - Fiction Theory Basket
Born in 1983 in Japan, Natsuko Uchino graduated from Cooper Union in New York in 2007. She develops a transversal practice between art and ecology. Her journey is as much marked by agricultural and collective experience as by an interest in traditional techniques, particularly ceramics. Working the land is one of the entry points into her work. It emphasises a commitment of the gesture in a more extended time, seeking to build a path in response to the acceleration of the mechanical and digital transformation of the world. Natsuko Uchino thus revisits the history of techniques by updating them in the light of the major societal and ecological issues of our time. The collective dimension is also important in her approach. In a transmission and exchange process, she often joins forces with other artists, craftsmen and students. In recent years, Natsuko Uchino's work has been exhibited at the Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen and at the Musée d'art moderne of Paris. The current exhibition is produced in collaboration with the Moulin du Got (Saint Léonard de Noblat), the Martell foundation (Cognac), the Blanchon (Limoges) and Bonnichon (Linards) companies and DTER design & territory (Limoges) . Natsuko Uchino is represented by the Joseph Allen gallery (Paris) and Sorry We Are Closed (Brussels).
