Perspective of the Globe Jungle 2001 Photo:Rinko Kawauchi

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.

Darren Almond Second Thoughts

November 16, 2013, to February 2, 2014

Darren Almond (b. 1971, UK) is a British contemporary artist who uses different media including video, paintings, and photographs in order to question the concept and our cognition of time.
Using modern technology, Almond’s works also share something in common with landscape paintings by Romantic painters such as J.M. W. Turner and John Constable and Asian sensibility that believes in the non-physical spiritual existence.
This exhibition will explore the concept of time and our cognition of time through Almond’s broad range of artistic practice including large-scale video installations, paintings and sculptures.
Visitors will be invited into a meditative time-space that represents a fusion of Western and Asian sensibilities.

SOYA ASAE EXHIBITION “sora iro”

(color of the air)

July 27, 2013, to October 27, 2013

As a graduate student at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, SOYA ASAE leaped into the spotlight with her paintings depicting casual everyday scenes and her personal things such as a bathtub full of soft light. In recent years, her activities have extended to the areas of installations and public art. Her artworks enfolding gentle all-encompassing light and colors as well as dynamic forms continue to fascinate viewers. In this exhibition, while her masterpieces, new paintings and installations are displayed, she faces challenges of showing her works on the street and making a video installation that utilizes the gallery space the best. Her new sphere of creation is showcased.
