In the mid-90s, Nobuhiko Nukata formed a style of expression in which he drew layers of minute grids suggestive of a jungle gym. Currently he uses a systematized method of applying oil paint along the grain of linen, upon which a white under painting is uniformly applied. By doing so, this performance becomes an “act” employed to nothing but filling a picture plane by freehand. This show features Nukata’s important series “F.P.M.S.” These are the initials of the ready-made wooden frames: “F (Figure / People)”, “P (Paysage / Landscape)”, “M (Marine / Seascape)” sold as “Japan-Size.” A new booklet with a full color photos and text by Toshiharu Suzuki (Curator, Toyota Municipal Museum of Art) will be published in conjunction with this exhibition.

Utopia & Chaos

(2018-02-26 - 2018-03-13)

Utopia is a term that refers to an ideal society far from reality. While it sounds like a place of dreams, it can also be seen to present a sharp contrast to the real world, critiquing reality while highlighting issues that exist. In a similar vein, though the work introduced in this exhibition seems as if it expresses an ideal world full of imaginary beauty, if you look closely at the objects and landscapes featured in the works you will notice the coexistence of chaos, hidden just under the surface. Erika Kusumi creates surreal worlds from digital collages comprised of landscapes and objects that she cuts out from images she herself has photographed. Meanwhile, Ayako Kuno produces metal sculptures that manifest the vision of Tokyo as a giant metropolis. Shunsuke Nanjo uses thermochromic painting techniques to depict familiar scenes that appear quiet but challenge the imagination of the viewer. Finally, Sumito Sakakibara expresses the chaotic coexistence of utopia and dystopia. This is an exhibition where we can discover our true form amidst the fantastical worlds these artists manifest. Venue: 1F Mina-to

AIT Artist Talk #73: Low Relief / Unreal Estate
at A.I.T. Room
Media: Photography - Video and Film - Talks
(2018-02-27)

Marina Višić and Ksenia Galiaeva are both artists based in the Netherlands. Višić is the current artist in residence at AIT, until April 7, organized in collaboration with Mondriaan Fonds. Meanwhile, Galiaeva participated in the same residency program for three months back in 2012. These two artists will each share their stories together with slides introducing the current and previous works and projects. This will be followed by a Q&A session. Through her artistic practices, Višić investigates how a variety of textures and movements can be placed into the landscape of the moving image. Staging is important, as is the scale of the images and their relation to the body. Her research at AIT is based on a various references concerning Japanese aesthetics, for instance, from Junichiro Tanizaki’s “In Praise of Shadows” and the films of Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu. In her talk, Višić will give an introduction to her work, followed by the motivation of her research here in Japan. In turn, Galiaeva has been photographing her parents in the paradisiacal surroundings of their Russian summerhouse for 20 years. With her project, “Unreal Estate,” Galiaeva explores the ways in which memory can be influenced and guided, and which part of it plays in perception. Galiaeva describes her work as ‘autobiographical fiction,’ a tool she uses to construct her own life story. Galiaeva considers self-dialogue through visual images the basis of all her work. Even though these two artists work in various media, both of their artistic practices examine and evoke our perception of visual experiences through. [Event Details] Date: Feb. 27 (Tue), 19:00-21:00 (Doors open 18:30) Capacity: 20 Admission: ¥1000; ¥800 for MAD students, students and AIT base members; Free for AIT house and support members *All admissions inc. 1 drink *Booking required *Event in Japanese and English (with consecutive translation) *Please see the website for further details

(2018-02-27 - 2018-03-29)

Hideyasu Moto is an illustrator and manga artist with a large fan base that takes avidly to his style: pop on the surface, but containing stories and a worldview ripe with cynicism. Moto started working as a freelance illustrator in 1990 and in 1995 made his debut as a manga artist. After publishing manga including “Recosuke-kun” and “Wild Mountain,” in recent years he has shifted the focus of his activities to illustration for use in commercials, magazines, picture books and other media. Meanwhile Moto is also known as a record collector and an authority well-versed in the realm of music. He regularly contributes to music magazines and the like, and he is on familiar terms with many musicians. From these musical connections, Moto‘s works have many fans within the music industry, while he has been involved in creating CD jackets and booklets for popular Japanese musicians such as Unicorn and Spitz. In 2014 Moto also founded his own record label, Rhion Records, specializing in the production of 7-inch (EP) records. Here he personally handles all aspects from planning and jacket design to product release. His ongoing and unique activities in this sphere are in sync with his unsurpassed love of music. This exhibition will showcase more than 200 of Moto’s original illustrations and manga drawings that have served as the source of his creative activities in book production. His chosen theme is “rock (music) and manga (stories).” [Related Events] Gallery Tour Date: Mar. 27 (Tue), 19:10-20:10 Admission: Free (booking required) Capacity: 40 *Event in Japanese *Please see the official website for further details.
