ONE THOUSAND DREAMS is the title of Ai Kijima's new, large-format work and solo exhibition of the same name. Created using traditional quilting techniques, the work being shown is a collage made from found fabrics like bed sheets, kimonos, T-shirts, curtains, tablecloths, boxer shorts and clothing items. After meticulously choosing the motifs, Kijima sewed the fabric pieces together into a patchwork of images that unfold like a movie: One collage (or scene) abruptly follows another, with the different protagonists either merging together or dissolving into the background. The result is a sense of non-stop action, as well as a narrative that invites the viewer to explore the multiple threads of meaning. Visible throughout the work, the stitching is more than simply a means to an end, as it dynamically impacts the visual composition and ultimately harmonizes the overall piece. Kijima describes her technique as "fused and quilted fabric."
