Iijima’s installation represents an exploration of the melding and divergence of cultural signifiers from Japan with global popular culture.Created during her second Arts/Industry iron-casting residency at the Kohler Company in Wisconsin, this series of small iron and brass sculptures draws formal inspiration from the traditional Japanese Nanbu tea kettle, as well as American pop aesthetics.
