Misako Inaoka: “Survival Game
Until June 20, 2009Travel Tea Sets

San Francisco based Inaoka engages the raw stuff of existence in meaningful and novel ways by blurring the boundary between technique and concept, sculpture and found object. Painted with a glossy, metallic sheen, and appearing, for all intents and purposes, to be of cast metal, Inaoka’s sculpture are in fact recombinations of everyday, pre-fab rubber children’s toys and animals. Half-animal, half-machine, Misako Inaoka’s hybrids are creatures that exist in a post-evolutionary world, where gradual adaptation has been supplanted by the uneasy and quick marriage of animal and machine.
