Urara Tsuchiya

Union Pacific, London (H1)

Union Pacific presents a solo booth by Japanese artist Urara Tsuchiya (b. 1979, Japan), she has decided to base the booth around a hotel room frozen in time.

A real double with a large ceramic sculpture on top, two real bedside tables with working ceramic lamps on them made by Urara, featuring figures and creatures contorted around on them. A decorative pot in the corner, complete with tall willow sticks, except the pot itself is another work by Urara. The wall behind includes six new relief like works, a mixture between the artwork on the hotel walls and the dreams of the inhabitants of the room.  The room is completed by a dressing table, a television screening a vide made by Urara and a carpet made by the artist with pieces from her textiles.
