Kei Takemura Biography

Kei Takemura, lives and works in Berlin. Takemura has continued to present works that are comprised of overlapping a layer of embroidered cloth on to a photograph or drawing. For Takemura, the act of embroidery is to create a state of being ‘tentative,’ and transform objects and places which no longer exist, and fragments of memory towards a tangible existence. Furthermore, in her “renovated series” comprised of objects that were broken by accident, the points of fracture are embroidered by silk thread. These “wounds” are given a new light and are preserved as new objects of beauty.
