Ana Matsubara: うろうろ [uro-uro]
Helen Lindhurst Fine Art Gallery
Exhibition dates: Feb 22 – Mar 8, 2023 

Helen Lindhurst Fine Art Gallery
USC Watt Hall (ground floor)


うろうろ [uro-uro] (translated from Japanese as onomatopoeia for the sound of wandering) explores cultural practice and lineage through a selection of molded and painted washi paper. As products of Matsubara’s apprenticeship in her ancestral homeland of Tottori, Japan, the exhibited materials are shrines of her development of tactile knowledge and uncovering of family histories. The project is generously supported by the Macomber Travel Grant.
