Hirona Matsuda - 1218
March 2017


Many of our memories are cast from the time spent in our childhood home. These structures take root in our memory as the places in which we became who we are today. It is a place where we laughed, cried, and learned to experienced life to the fullest.

In her latest solo exhibition, Hirona Matsuda converts the gallery space into a world inspired by the memories of her growing up in her family’s North Carolina home. 1218 features a new series of Matsuda’s sculptural and assemblage works as well as a site-specific installation which incorporates maple tree seeds found and given to the artist by numerous members of the Charleston community.
