Exploring the role of the narrative in her artwork is natsko Seki's most recent obsession and is at the core of her work in this show.
Comparison, a process which encourages you to search for similarities and differences in equal measure, is central to Seki’s practice. Her work is focused on discovering analogies and correlations between things made in different times and places, and different countries, cultures, colour combinations, costumes and buildings.
In this new series of work, viewers will find themselves actively comparing images as they are repeated and varied. Through this process, Seki is challenging the viewers to interpret the illustrations and their varying contexts, in order to become storytellers themselves. Drawing viewers into her works, Natsko Seki creates a world where the differences in things have whimsical harmony as well as rhythmical contrasts.
In this talk event Seki and the curator Olivia Ahmad will talk about Seki's recent work, career to date, and her inspirations and approach to materials and narrative.
