Artist Emmanuelle Moureaux Uses Centimeter-level Measurement Accuracy as a Motif in Her Latest Paper Art Installation

Presented for the exhibition ‘Space in Ginza’ at METoA METoA in Tokyu Plaza Ginza, Moureaux's ‘I am here’ comprises the silhouettes of 18,000 women in 100 different colors. these paper pieces express the non-stop flow of pedestrians that occupy the bustling district of japan. seemingly lost within the vibrant mass of paper people are three silhouettes — two girls and one cat — encouraging visitors to seek them out within the many layers of the installation. Just like looking for the ‘lost’ silhouettes in the crowd, the installation serves a reminder for visitors to rethink where they belong.
