Nahoko Kojima’s largest Paper Cut Sculpture to date, a handmade life-sized Blue Whale called Shiro (meaning ‘White’ in Japanese) was made from a very large sheet of custom made Japanese Washi paper near 150 square metres in size. The result was a sculpture swimming out of the ground in a 32 metre hall at the BACC Bangkok. The sculpture itself was 23 metres in length, continuing Kojima’s process of creating works that are true to scale. Using the sculptures as a canvas on which to cut her intricate stories and experiences the Artist conveys her unique way of looking at the World which has brought much joy to art lovers around the globe.
