In Asana Fujikawa's work plays superstition and religion, fear and desire, heroism and monsters a important role in it - especially with regard to the influence of water or the sea on man. The artist draws from the long ceramic tradition of Japan, draws and etches and composes her own texts. In the process, all the components fit organically into one another without a fixed chronology. In this way, new cross-media narratives emerge that are not closed, but liquid and permeable. All the figures, be they heroes and heroines, monsters or containers of souls, come from a coherent cosmos and reappear again and again in her work. The contradictions of human existence in all its stages, growth and decay, is also reflected in Fujikawa's handling of her preferred material, clay. Finely worked out and colorfully differentiated elements meet in contrasting with raw, cracked or holey forms. The beautiful and the abysmal - both the artist gives equal space to both.
