s+oryprobl=m :: fragile vessels (2017)

A salve, a breath, a gentle reminder during turbulent times of the fragility and fleeting nature of all things, the 1461 teacups and bowls delicately handmade out of paper that comprise s+oryprobl=m :: fragile vessels give pause to the weight of ‘forever’ and provide a quiet gesture of acknowledgement to ourselves and to others, even when we may feel overwhelmed by circumstances at hand.


s+oryprobl=m is a single exhibition of several art installations by C.K.Itamura that occurs over several months in multiple locations.

s+oryprobl=m :: fragile vessels is the first of several s+oryprobl=m art installations by C.K.Itamura presented in 2017. The second, s+oryprobl=m :: alternate route was at The Spinster Sisters in Santa Rosa, California from April 4 thru June 5, 2017. The third, s+oryprobl=m :: burst will be at Chalk Hill Artist Residency in Healdsburg, California in 2018.
