KITAKORE BUILDING, KOENJI – TOKYO SHOPPING & SIGHTSEEING.

The Kitakore complex in Koenji, Tokyo is one of the most absurd and surreal places I have ever visited. The building consists of five shops that are more-or-less on top of each other. The actual building looks like a ruin, but inside it is full of most unexpected details. The stores offer a selection of mostly hand-made DIY one-off pieces that are beyond words – However there are also more ordinary accessories and clothes. I highly recommend an inspiration visit.

The same week Japanese costume designer Araki Shiro’s exhibition opened in Kitakore Building – Hosted by Garter which is one of the stores.

My idea is based on the complexity between architectural form and surreal sculpture and assemblage. I create objects by hand, resembling organic forms using inorganic material, such as carbon fibre and glass fibre. As a costume designer, my creations are not designed to fit the human body, however they are meant to be wearable, uncomfortable and awkward. I am interested in the relationship between the objects and the body. Its phenomenal form is called “Subconscious Form”.
