Hirofumi Fujiwara’s human sculptures, modelled from clay and plastic, stand, sit or lie in the exhibition space, reposing, transparent walls are surrounding their fragile bodies.

Oscillating between the two worlds, Fujiwara’s Utopians bear references from the Japanese as well as the European Western culture.

They seem youthful and yet ageless, androgynous and detached from all stereotypes – isolated from this world, yet resting in the very moment, anchored in pure just-being.
