Kyoko Hashimoto: Bioregional Bodies
3 March - 1 May 2022
Kyoko Hashimoto is a Japanese-born Australian designer working across critical craft and design. Concerned with environmentally sustainable practices, Hashimoto creates objects that address existential threats posed by globalised resource extraction and the particular materials that dominate urban experience: plastic, concrete and fossil fuels. Using methods of place-based making and drawing inspiration from the Japanese animist religion of Shinto and its veneration of natural phenomena, Hashimoto is interested in how designers engage with materials for production and their relationship to the land.
‘Bioregional Bodies’ brings together new and recent works made from locally sourced materials found in the Sydney Basin, a bioregion characterised by the presence of sandstone, oyster shells for making concrete, and intriguingly, coal.
