Japanese-born sculptor Kazuko identified the wheel as an object of motion that bridged elements of Eastern spiritualism and Western technology. For his exhibition at Storefront, Kazuko installed two 8-foot high cardboard carriage wheels in the gallery space. Visible through the spokes of the wheels were wall paintings of a baby carriage, bicycles and women with parasols, images that together evoked the various stages of human development. In one corner of the exhibition space, suspended scarves were used to evoke clouds. The wheel was intended as a metaphor for cyclical movement through time and space.
