Online Exhibition! The Japanese word for cut, “kire”, is more connected to aesthetics than its English counterpart. The aim of cutting is to create negative space or betweenness. With handmade Japanese shears, artist Leah Virsik cuts up jeans and sweaters, stripping them of their original function. Through an act of unmaking, these strips of material hold this sense of betweenness. No longer a castoff, they are imbued with potentiality and a remaking of the self.
