Toshio Saeki “Unnen”
at Nanzuka (Shibuya area)
(2018-01-20 - 2018-03-03)

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.

Delicious! Animating Memorable Meals
at Ghibli Museum, Mitaka (Musashino, Tama area)
(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.
