Hsiao-Chi Tsai & Kimiya Yoshikawa
Blooming Spark Cosmos
Well known for their public and private commissions, Hsiao-Chi and Kimiya, have produced exclusively for Vessel Gallery a vibrant unique sculptural chandelier in acrylic that resembles a bouquet of alien botany.
London-based artists Hsiao-Chi Tsai (1981, Taiwan) and Kimiya Yoshikawa (1980, Japan) Tsai and Yoshikawa come from textile and sculpture backgrounds respectively. Their joint practice has cumulated in some extraordinary pieces that marry unexpected materials such as neoprene, acrylics and UV paint with lighting and installation. Their bold use of colour and modern sensibility combine to produce joyful, imaginative work. The pieces are contradictory being synthetic, organic and hand made all at the same time.
