Shihoko Fukumoto

Since the ‘70s, FUKUMOTO Shihoko has been challenging the boundary between contemporary art and aizome (traditional Japanese indigo dyeing) in her practice combining a variety of cultural legacies. In recent years, Fukumoto has been focusing on ancient textile production and processing methods that have met extinction. She breathes new life into rare fabrics such as the Okusozakkuri and Echigochijimi, reviving these microcosms of geography, climate, culture, and history through her application of aizome techniques.
