Artist Talks Programme

Artist Talks Programme - Keiko Mukaide/ Inge Paneels

Venue: Lecture Theatre 009, the Prospect Building, St Peter's Campus (2 minutes walk from National Glass Centre)

4pm Keiko Mukaide - AA2A Artist at National Glass Centre

Keiko is a Japanese artist working in WASPS studio in Edinburgh since 1993. Originally from Tokyo, she studied ceramics and glass at the Royal College of Art in London and was a research fellow with a high level of involvement in the Glass department at the Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) until recently. She has undertaken residencies and exhibitions across Europe and worldwide, consequently over a dozen of my pieces are in public collections including in the Victoria & Albert museum in UK and the Corning Museum in America. Her work explores many glass making techniques, and also expresses her ideas through other materials and medias. Site-specific temporary installations are her signature pieces, initiated first through her installation ‘Elemental Traces’ in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in 1999 then ‘Miegakari’ at the Mackintosh’s Hill House in 2000. ‘Spirit of Place’ shown in the Talbot Rice gallery in 2003 travelled to the Ebeltoft Glass Museum in Denmark. An ambitious site specific installation ‘Light of the North’ (16 metre length) was created for and exhibited at Tate St Ives in 2006 and ‘Memory of Place’ was a whole church installation at the St Mary’s Church in York in 2007-2008, all of these projects were strongly related to people and history of place. Running in parallel to these projects, she also developed bespoke public art commissions in order to sustain herself economically. Fortunately the experience of site-specific exhibitions enriched her creative context, including collaborative practice. 'The public and health sector like hospital commissions are rewarding'. www.keikomukaide.com
