Hem by Misa Asanuma
“Hem is based on my fixation with the costumes of Noh, a form of Japanese dance-drama. While I tend to avoid traditionalism in any form, I was always fascinated by the shapes and movements created by these costumes and the Noh performers in them. I expanded my interest by including a few photographs and other elements which represent my gaze on subtle moments.”
Hem is a 16-page photocopy zine composed of artist Misa Asanuma’s studies of the suspension and flow of Noh actors and their rippling costumes.
