Bosco Sodi is one of young emerging artists from Mexico.
As a part of exchange program among Mexico, Barcelona and Tokyo, Bosco stays at TWS Aoyama: Creator-in-Residence from June to August and creating new works using organic materials connected to its origin's cultural background.
"Each organic material has different energy. By mixing different organic material from each country, I create new energy form and increase its power," he said.
Sodi experiments to combine loofah, a plant which represent both Mexican and Spanish culture and "Ohai (ashes used in Japanese tea ceremony)" in his latest works to demonstrate the ties among this three locations.
TWS Aoyama will be hosting Bosco Sodi's open studio to show his achievements depicted from his stay followed by "Wednesday Lounge Artist Talk" on August 1st where he is going to talk about what he has been working with as well as introducing new works made during his residency.
