Spuyten Duyvil

In this exhibition Furukawa presented new pottery made using indigenous Japanese pottery techniques, created based on New York legends from the collection Spooky New York: Tales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings, and Other Local Lore by S. E. Schlosser, illustrated by Paul G. Hoffman. The pottery pieces were presented in an installation with found objects and are accompanied by watercolor drawings, also responding to the tales.
