Takemura’s signature offerings consist of two-dimensional installations in which embroidered white cloth is overlaid on photographs or drawings, and the “renovated” series, in which broken everyday items are mended by sewing the damaged parts together with white silk thread. For this artist, the act of embroidering with the intent of creating a “tentative” state leads to the reconstruction of various memories and objects, which then manifest in new guises.
