“100 colors” installation tracing “memory”. Composed of small numbers writing “years”, overlapping in 100 colors layers — the deeper the layer, the older the year — the artwork is an abstract representation of layers of “memory”. The front layer, expressing the present 2023, is represented in white, while the 100 colors gradation expresses the flow of past time. May this colorful space of memory be where people gather, think, and remember precious memories.

French architect, artist and designer living in Tokyo since 1996. Inspired by the layers and colors of Tokyo that built a complex depth and density on the street, and the traditional spatial elements like sliding screens, she has created the concept of "shikiri", which literally means "dividing (creating) space with colors". Using colors as her signature, her works extend to a number of projects, including architectural design for Sugamo Shinkin Bank, art installations for UNIQLO and ISSEY MIYAKE, "100 colors" art installation series, and "Forest of Numbers" at The National Art Center, Tokyo. Professor at Tohoku University of Art and Design.
