Shigeko Kubota: Liquid Reality
By Shigeko Kubota
Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, Shigeko Kubota: Liquid Reality sheds new light on the multilayered practice of Shigeko Kubota (1937-2015), who broke new ground with her intrepid video sculptures combining "the energy of electrons" with raw materials like plywood, sheet metal, mirrors and the natural element of water. At the forefront of a generation of artists drawn to the nascent medium of video for its freedom from precedent, Kubota likened newly available portable video technology to a "new paintbrush." She employed early image-processing tools to create otherworldly portraits and landscapes that explored journeys both personal and artistic.
