Jung Yeondoo Just Like the Road across the Earth

November 8, 2014, to February 1, 2015

I thought: hope cannot be said to exist, nor can it be said not to exist. It is just like roads across the earth. For actually the earth had no roads to begin with, but when many men pass one way, a road is made.
From “My Old Home” by Lu Xuin
In November 2014, Contemporary Art Center, Art Tower Mito will present the first major solo museum exhibition in Japan of work by Jung Yeondoo. From photography to video installation, “Jung Yeondoo: Just Like the Road across the Earth” will present a wide range of works following his artistic practice of engaging society by communicating with local people.

YAMAGUCHI Akira Stepping Back to Seek the Underneath

February 21, 2015, to May 17, 2015

We present the solo exhibition of YAMAGUCHI Akira, who is known for depicting figures, buildings and other motifs with exquisitely detailed brushwork reminiscent of the style of ukiyo-e or yamato-e. His works are exceptionally highly acclaimed both in Japan and abroad.

The exhibition’s title, ‘Stepping Back to Seek the Underneath’, expresses Yamaguchi’s unique perspective on both art and philosophy of life, while also evoking the composition of the exhibition itself: revealing the world of his art room by room, and hinting at the creation of his epic masterworks. As you stroll through the space, you feel that you have caught a glimpse of the artist’s thinking process.

We invite you to experience the world of Yamaguchi Akira, overflowing with subtle wit which blends the present and the past, the ordinary and the extraordinary, into a perfect whole.
