Yasuhiro Suzuki Exhibition “Neighborhood Globe”

August 2, 2014, to October 19, 2014

This time, “Neighborhood Globe” is a themed exhibition composed of Yasuhiro Suzuki’s most important works and his new pieces. In addition, the project “Flip Book Manga Shopping Streets in Mito” is conducted to represent the streets of Mito in a new perspective.
“Neighborhood Globe” is another name for his “Perspective of the Globe Jungle,” one of the works representing him, and it also indicates his basic philosophy of production: the idea of being a part of the earth (the bigger whole) while remaining close to our neighborhood.
He creates stylish works with his acute sensitivity and in a new context, dealing with a natural phenomenon or what is likely to be overlooked in our daily life. He shows us how familiar and surprising the earth can be, whose existence we are seldom conscious of, although it is so close to us.
