ONKOCHISHIN is a fashion show created by Japanese fashion designer Akiko Elizabeth Maie and inspired by the work of interdisciplinary artist Grimanesa Amorós. Akiko established Nepenthes Co. LTD, a globally known fashion company. In 2014 she launched her newest label AKIKO ELIZABETH MAIE.
The theme of “温故知新 ONKOCHISHIN – means discovering new horizons by researching the past.” We are made up of the past, but it is up to us how much we let it define who we are. This exploration was to take the past and re-invent and redefine how it affects our future. The only thing we can govern is our present and how we see the uncertain future. The past has already been created and developed, teaching us lessons about ourselves to improve our current and approach our future differently. This presentation aimed to make you think beyond.

Biography: Grimanesa Amorós is a New York-based American interdisciplinary artist with diverse interests in the fields of social history, scientific research, and critical theory. Through her art, she conveys a sense of ephemeral wonder, entrancing viewers from all different backgrounds and communities. She inspires others to become agents of empowerment. Grimanesa makes use of sculpture, video, and lighting to create works that illuminate our notions of personal identity and community. She was a guest speaker at TEDGlobal 2014, a recipient of the ‘NEA Visual Artist Fellowship’, the ‘NEA Artist Travel Grant’, and has the distinction of being part of the ‘Art In Embassies Program of the U.S.’.
Grimanesa Amorós has often drawn upon important Peruvian cultural legacies as inspiration for her large-scale light-based installations, which she has presented around the globe, from Mexico, Tel Aviv, and Beijing, to New York’s Times Square. She continues to be inspired by Peru’s history for her art, but does not hold an essentialist or nostalgic view of her subject. Grimanesa often gives talks at museums and universities where her lectures attract not only developing artists, but students and faculty engaged with science and technology. When it comes to the art of Grimanesa Amorós, one feels that the past is meeting the future. Amorós has exhibited in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
