An illuminating introduction to a visionary figure in the history of video art and video sculpture

Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, Shigeko Kubota: Liquid Reality sheds new light on the multilayered practice of Shigeko Kubota (1937–2015), who broke new ground with her intrepid video sculptures combining “the energy of electrons” with raw materials like plywood, sheet metal, mirrors and the natural element of water. At the forefront of a generation of artists drawn to the nascent medium of video for its freedom from precedent, Kubota likened newly available portable video technology to a “new paintbrush.” She employed early image-processing tools to create otherworldly portraits and landscapes that explored journeys both personal and artistic.
Essays by curator Erica Papernik-Shimizu and scholar Gloria Sutton provide an in-depth look at a selection of Kubota’s key video sculptures from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s, which pivoted from her Duchampiana series to a foregrounding of nature as a means of examining her medium, the world, and her place in it. This richly illustrated publication further contextualizes the artist’s work through her writings and drawings, as well as archival ephemera. Viewed through the lens of today’s digitally interconnected world, Kubota’s revelatory sculptures continue to astonish through their economy of means and poetic juxtaposition of the organic and the electronic.
Shigeko Kubota (1937–2015) was a key protagonist in the Fluxus movement before her four-decade career as a video artist began in the early 1970s. She became a pioneer in the medium of video sculpture, working collaboratively to encase video monitors in volumetric forms. In doing so, she liberated video from the constraints of the “TV box” and explored nature as a metaphor for video technology. In parallel, she served as Video Curator at Anthology Film Archives between 1974 and 1983, and facilitated a critical exchange between video artists in New York and Tokyo.
