Konichiwa Auckland, on Sunday we were on the line to Aiko Robinson in Tokyo. Robinson's practice draws inspiration from Shunga, an age-old term for Japanese erotic art. She fuses Shunga, (traditionally consumed by everyone men and women of all classes) with screen-shot compositions of western pornography (which is generally made by men, for men). The resulting works are striking, skillful and humourous mash-ups of sexual imagery. We also heard some good tunes, and especially some sonic goodness from Rachel - she introduced us to the sounds of pioneering producer Suzanne Ciani. Cheers for listening! Keep in touch :)
