Kyoko Kumai's works of stainless steel filament have been recognized internationally, exhibited at MOMA in New York, the Science Museum in London and the Tapestry Bienniale in Lausanne. "The traditions of weaving and of working by hand rather than machine or computer lie at the root of Kyoko Kumai's procedures, but her use of industrial material and off-loom three-dimensional composition places her work firmly in the arena of modern art," Martina Margetts, Senior Tutor in Critical and Historical Studies, Royal College of Art, London. This volume includes images of Kumai's large-scale installations and intimate constructions and an essay, in English and Japanese, by art critic and historian Ryoko Kuroda.
