Media: Painting - Performance Art - Talks
(2017-11-03 - 2018-02-25)

In the works of Maki Ohkojima, new life is born and new ecosystems develop out of sleeping creatures. The universe is depicted as being full of living things, with the connections between birds, beasts, plants and trees demonstrating the infinitesimal bonds of life. It is through the act of painting that Ohkojima breathes life into animals and plants. In her works, the complexity of nature and the way it interconnects is expressed in a clear and detailed manner. At times her imagination literally jumps off of the canvas, spiraling out into the gallery space and spinning magnificent natural histories that combine a plethora of images and exceed our human sensibilities. Ohkojima’s unconventional approach to painting also leads her to use surfaces such as walls, floors, and ceilings to produce her pieces. In this exhibition you will have a chance to see the artist at work on a large wall mural and witness the explosive growth of huge plants that take over while the humans in her painting sleep. Even if mankind were to disappear, here life continues to spread forth.

(2017-05-28 - 2018-05-01)

Studio Ghibli films are renowned for depicting daily life in great detail. What often lingers in the memory of viewers are scenes of food and meals: Pazu and Sheeta sharing a fried egg on toast in “Castle in the Sky,” Chihiro shedding tears of relief while eating a rice ball received from Haku in “Spirited Away,” Howl frying up bacon and eggs for Sophie, Markl and everyone in “Howl’s Moving Castle,” the list goes on… The foods that appear are not particularly special, often being rather common, but their appearance in the films always has special meaning. Pazu and Sheeta’s hearts connect when they share the same food. The courage to face her challenges blooms in Chihiro as she eats the rice ball. Around the dining table a family forms while everyone enjoys bacon and eggs in “Howl’s Moving Castle.” Scenes of casual meals are infused with tremendous storytelling importance, and achieving dramatic effect while creating delicious-looking meals and characters enjoying them - show in their expressions and gestures - comes from the power of finely detailed drawing. Food that is still warm, that looks soft and tender, with the wonderful flavor showing on the faces of those eating them - these scenes of meals are appealing and charming. No dialogue is needed to convey deliciousness and happiness. This exhibition introduces how food can be drawn to appear even more delectable than the real thing, creating scenes of joy.
