Kyoto artist Takiguchi tailors his sculptures from single sheets of clay that he "wraps around air," smoothing away all traces of fabrication. Although the organic forms, stretching and extending, coated with wrinkled glaze, are evocative of human or animal bodies, Takiguchi resolutely refuses to title his works. He usually develops his exhibitions as installations, creating evocative relationships among the forms in settings ranging from gardens to warehouses. No. 5, fifth in a series made for Takiguchi's first exhibition in the United States, debuted in a church in lower Manhattan.
