Koichiro Yamamoto

Artist in Residence

Koichiro Yamamoto originally trained as a designer of functional objects in his native Japan. It is his interest in objects and the life that vessels take on when transferred into museum collections that informs his work. His series of colourless almost ethereal pieces – casts of perfume bottles, champagne bottle and glasses exhibited in display cases to reiterate their loss of practical function – explore the concept of the ‘glass still life’ with beauty and quiet intelligence.
