Oklahoma Contemporary

Sojourning

Chiyoko Myose

June 2 - Aug. 11, 2018 | Fairgrounds

Oklahoma Contemporary hosted a solo exhibition of fiber installations by Chiyoko Myose, a Japanese artist who has been living in Wichita, Kan., for the past 20 years. With her works, Myose expresses her experiences of living in a foreign country. She considers herself as a sojourner, a person who stays in one place temporarily, like a traveler. The works explored cultural, social, philosophical and spiritual themes. Four installation pieces had a common theme of “relationship,” from relationships between individuals to those between countries. The exhibition also included a piece that invited members of the community to contribute to the artwork by tying knots with threads. Each new knot was a reminder that we are all connected and we should treasure that connection. The exhibition also featured a new work, created especially for Oklahoma Contemporary.
