Kenji Fujita + Nancy Shaver
Kenji Fujita and Nancy Shaver, untitled collaboration, 2008, at John Davis Gallery, in Hudson, NY.
This piece is included in the Nancy Shaver-curated group show in the top-floor space of the rear "carriage house" (it feels more like an old grain elevator/silo). Perfect piece for this space... all of the angles, the palette, the possibilities of function and purpose, the materials and treatment. Too good.
Kenji Fujita's debris of life and mind #2, 2008, leaning against wall in background... house paint, sculptamold, aqua-resin, fiberglass, felt, found objects, cardboard, wood and 3/4" plywood square (24 x 24").
pile of freely stacked gray boxes... they're light, just painted cardboard, or maybe empty soap boxes.
clumpy protest sign - this was in the box, i pulled it out to see if those sticks were anything.
sails. it's on casters.
