Tezuka is known for her woven textile pieces, some of which involve long threads hanging from half-finished embroidered fabrics. By exposing “unfinished” parts of her works, she deconstructs and reconstructs images to reveal their temporal and creative processes, and their history.

Five paintings by Claude Monet and Paul Signac, including Monet’s famous “Irises and Water-Lilies” and Signac’s “Venezia” are on display, making a colorful juxtaposition with around 20 installations and drawings by Tezuka; till June 12.
