The female body is very often seen by women as imperfect, as something more difficult to love than to discredit. Not accepting it, however, is like denying the essence of our bodies as a whole. In her second exhibition at Nidi Gallery, Ewelina Skowronska presents “Internal Moments,” a new series of work that takes a closer look at the carnality of the female form. Informed by her experimentation with ceramic figures and sculptural objects that she began working on in 2017, here the artist concentrates more on feelings and emotions as opposed to narrative. Her sharply produced prints move away from showing the female body as a finite whole, instead suggesting a sense of space and fluidity to the viewer. The works focus on ephemeral and unspoken aspects, where the combination of screen printing and the delicacy of etching produces a unique and powerful contrast. This latest body of work explores the line between the abstract and the figurative.

In nineteenth-century France, as fragrance culture was reaching its height, René Lalique (1860-1945) exquisitely captured the invisible world of “scent” through sophisticated glasswork embellished with flowers and fairies that glimmer in the palm of the hand. Centering on the diverse designs of Lalique’s perfume bottles, this exhibition features around 160 items, including accessories and women’s fashions of the era.

Amidst the madness of contemporary city life, what is China’s present, as expressed by C.H.I, the most noticed contemporary artist in Beijing? The curator of this exhibition is Yasumasa Yonehara, an editor and occasional instant camera photographer who boasts 2.36 million followers on Weibo (also known as “Chinese Twitter”). Yonehara, whose who is also known overseas, became acquainted with C.H.I in 2012. That year, he visited C.H.Iʼs solo exhibition in Beijing, at a gallery run by the same curator who had handled his own exhibition. Seeing C.H.I’s work, with all sorts of eccentric and fashionable presentations he had never before imagined, gave him a shock stronger than anything from Japan could have. Five years have since passed, and this is Yonehara’s first opportunity to introduce the work of this cutting-edge Chinese artist in Tokyo. This exhibition will showcase around 60 of C.H.I’s main artworks, in addition to displaying some new pieces.

Every year Diesel Shibuya, the one-and-only concept-based store where you can experience the Diesel lifestyle, invites an architect, interior designer, or artist to create a freely inspired space showcasing the home collection. This year’s installation is by Geneto, who works in urban planning, architecture, product design, and art. Geneto calls this display “The Wall” because it presents a single scene created with wall arrangements altering perceptions of size and space. Its design will change with the seasons, so the viewing experience is different each visit. Discover the new possibilities of the wall, an element of interior design that has been with us since antiquity.

Shibuya Ibis bldg., B2F 2-17-3 Shibuya, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-0002

(2018-01-20 - 2018-02-24)

This is legendary artist Toshio Saeki’s first solo presentation at the gallery, and is his largest solo exhibition to date, featuring a comprehensive selection of original works. Saeki was born in 1954 in Miyazaki prefecture, and after spending his childhood years in Osaka, moved to Tokyo in 1969. His distinctive works that interweave elements of eroticism, humor, and horror gained the praise of Shuji Terayama and Tatsuhiko Shibusawa, leading him to make his debut on the pages of Heibon Punch magazine in 1970. In the same year, he released his first publication entitled “Toshio Saeki Art Book” (Agrément-sha) and held an exhibition that introduced the original works featured, all of which were been stolen after it closed. Saeki’s work soon gained international popularity, and one of his images was used for the cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s 1972 album “Sometime in New York City.” The world of black humor and eroticism that permeate Saeki’s works is replete with provocative gimmickry, which by means of unveiling various sexual taboos, serves to stimulate our inner selves. From observing the high literary qualities of his works as conceived through the various forms of love and desire that are inherent within them, it is evident that his depictions are not mere lustful inclinations. Moreover, viewers recognize how the “lines” define the exquisite boundaries between the simplicity and calculation that constitutes his works as art, the persuasiveness amplified through them. Saeki’s works that can indeed be considered as contemporary Shunga (erotic art) or Yokaiga (ghost and monster art) are not confined to the context of Japan’s underground illustration scene. He continues to receive increasing international acclaim, having held exhibitions in recent years in countries such as the UK, France, Israel, the US, Canada, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. He has also seen the successive release of his publications: “Rêve écarlate” (éditions Cornélius), “Yumenozoki: Toshio Saeki Artist Book” (Kokushokankokai Inc.), and “Toshio Saeki 70” (Seirin Kogeisha). In addition to some new pieces, this exhibition introduces a selection of Saeki’s original illustrations centering on those produced between the 1970s and 1980s. On this occasion, Saeki has also engaged in the challenge of creating a large-scale mural in color.

Rudolf II (1552-1612) reigned as the Holy Roman Emperor and is known as an unrivalled collector and patron of art. He made major contributions to European artistic culture during the late-16th and early-17 centuries by amassing paintings, writings, artifacts, and flora and fauna from around the globe. This exhibition displays work by Giuseppe Arcimboldo and other artists under Rudolf II’s patronage. Won’t you take a look into the world of art and science contained in his “Chamber of Curiosities”?

Glaze is the glass-like layer that covers the surface of a piece of ceramics. In Japanese, glaze is generally called uwagusuri or yūyaku. Applying glaze does more than simply make the dish more durable and impervious to liquid; the chemical reactions that occur during firing also create textures and colors that add to the beauty of the piece. The four main coatings seen on Edo-era Imari ware are transparent glaze, celadon, a bluish glaze known as ruriyu, and an iron-brown glaze called sabi-yu. Various and differing works were made taking full advantage of the special color and characteristics of each glaze. Some pieces, for example, are completely devoid of painted design, allowing the color and texture of the glaze to draw out the inherent beauty of the shape. In other cases, rich expression is achieved by using multiple glazes on a single piece. In this exhibition, we focus on glazes as we present approximately 80 fine examples of Imari ware. As you see with your own eyes how different works can be depending on the glaze and application techniques used, we hope you will gain new appreciation for glaze and find ever more pleasure in ceramics.

This exhibition sheds light on the relationship between Shiko Munakata, a woodblock maker and important 20th century Japanese artist, and Soetsu Yanagi, leader of the Mingei folk-craft movement. Munakata respected and admired Soetsu Yanagi as a teacher throughout his life while Yanagi recognized and cherished Munakata’s talent. Focusing on these two major players in the Mingei movement in a way only possible at the Japan Folk-Craft Museum, this show introduces letters between Munakata and Yanagi and spotlights the beauty of Munakata’s work.
