Rad Asako Široki zasniva se na procesima i delima koja se izvode iz prirodnih materijala i oblika od kojih su i sačinjeni. Te strukturalne plastike prizivaju i gledaočevo sećanje na delove nameštaja (drvene letve i palete), ali zatim to sećanje biva dekonstruisano i usmereno ka nestajanju i ništavilu – ka teritoriji gde nema mesta sećanju. Ovaj postupak razotriva nam svet koji je lišen uobičajenih značenja i asocijacija. Krećući se, potpuno nezavisno, između sveta gde je sopstvo određeno stvarima i sveta gde su stvari određene sopstvom, ona pokušava da odmota i protumači te paralelne svetove, stalno oscilirajući između večnog ponavljanja sećanja i ništavila.
Njen rad započinje tako što izabere parče drveta i počne da ga testeriše.  U tom trenutku ideja o fukcionalnosti se zaboravlja i ona stvara oblik iz svojih  pokreta i same  ideje. Služi se tradicionalnim japanskim stolarskim tehnikama i starim alatom i radi bez upotrebe metalnih spojki. Radeći na ovaj način ona nam otkriva sam postupak, i čin stvaranja dela,  pre  nego bilo koju pojedinačnu tehniku.  Nju interesuje odnos negativa i pozitiva, kako da postavi  predmete da se drže, stoje i budu u ravnoteži u prostoru.  Sve ovo sa sobom nosi ne samo filozofsko značenje već ima i praktičnu i estetsku dimenziju: svest o praznini – u Japanu ma – koja pokreće njen rad, suprotstavljena je zapadnjačkoj ideji praznine i nudi zavodljivo jezgro oko kojeg se sva materija vrti i kojoj se mora pre ili kasnije vratiti.

Solo exhibition
3 – 31.10. 2019
Opening: Thursday, October 3, at 19:00
Art Gallery – Knez Mihailova 6

At the 56th October Salon, Belgrade 2016,  curated by Davide Elliot, Asako Shiroki  won the Cultural Centre of Belgrade Award, which entails organising a solo exhibition of her work at one of the Centre’s galleries.
The Cultural Centre of Belgrade  has a pleasure to present her solo exhibition Your Voice, Echoed at the Art Gallery in October 2019.
Asako Shiroki’s work revolves around various actions and processes that are derived from the natural materials and forms out of which it is made. Its sculptural structure evokes the viewer’s recollection because it seems to resemble fragments of furniture (wooden grids or frames), but then a process of deconstruction takes place as the impression of these objects is oriented towards a sense of disappearance and oblivion – a territory that no place for memory. This discloses a world of objects bereft of conventional meanings and associations. Working autonomously between a territory of self-defined-by-things and one of things-defined-by-self, she attempts to unfold and interpret two parallel worlds, oscillating between perpetually repeated cycles of recollection and oblivion. Her work begins when she first takes a piece of wood and starts sawing it. Then all idea of function is lost as she builds a form around her action and idea. She follows traditional
Japanese methods of carpentry using traditional tools and no metal fixings. In doing this she reveals the process, the motion and the act of making a work, rather than any particular technique, and her interest lies in the reflection of positives and negatives, of ways of getting things to hold, stand and balance in space. This has a philosophical as well as practical and aesthetic dimension: the idea of emptiness ‒ in Japanese ma ‒ that animates her work, in contrast with the existential negativity of the western idea of void, provides an infinite and seductive core around which all matter revolves and to which it must ultimately revert.

Asako Shiroki (b. 1979, Tokyo) currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Tokyo, Japan. She completed her Ph.D. in Fine Arts at Tokyo University of the Arts and participated in the International Studio Program in Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin(2013-2014).
