Junya Sato + Nobuhiko Murayama + Nina Beier & Marie Lund “Light Through the Window”

Junya Sato + Nobuhiko Murayama + Nina Beier & Marie Lund “Light Through the Window”
at Hagiwara Projects
101 Sun View Heights Shinjuku, 3-18-2 Nishi Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 160-0023
Media: Sculpture - Installation
(2017-08-26 - 2017-09-24)

Exhibition introducing the work of three artists/artist units: Junya Sato, Nobuhiko Murayama, and Nina Beier & Marie Lund. Over the last few years, Junya Sato has regularly created drawings by spreading coins left in his wallet at the end of the day on a canvas and tracing the outline of their shape. In this exhibition, works selected from out of over 100 drawings will be presented either on display or exhibited inside a box. The abstract, monochromatic images are suggestive of great streams in human society, such as the circulation of currency and the social activities associated with it. Nobuhiko Murayama explores how to express the optical experience of seeing a thing through painting, taking ancient sculptures exhibited in overseas museums as a motif. The image of these sculptures, painted by pushing paint through from the back of the coarse cotton linen through to the front of the canvas, is faint and blurred, but has a strong sense of presence, as if an image has been etched on the retina. His artwork is an abstraction of the sense of time hidden behind images. Nina Beier & Marie Lund will exhibit framed vintage posters works that were initially exhibited in 2008. The theme of these posters is the protest of war; however, viewers can hardly see the contents as the posters themselves are folded in half. Their artworks challenge viewer on the “perception of images,” presenting objects that are themselves barely visible. The “images” produced through these three different approaches quietly but satisfyingly permeate the viewers’ instincts and experiences.

Atsunobu Kohira has been on the path of cultivating his thoughts on and working with the material of coal for years. His initial encounter with it was in a landscape that he saw using a scanning microscope. Through the lens, the texture of the coal in super close-up presented a beautiful gray-scale world, offering a magnificent view resembling that of an unknown planet. Kohira named his journey that started then as ‘pilgrimage of coal;’ there were no fixed destinations or predetermined routes. Navigated by his interest and led by accidental encounters, Kohira’s ‘pilgrimage of coal’ continues to this day. This exhibition is a chapter, or rather a volume, in its journey. [Related Events] Talk Event: Atsunobu Kohira x Azusa Hashimoto (Senior Researcher at National Museum of Art, Osaka) Event Time: Sep. 2 (Sat) 17:00-18:30 Admission: Free (booking required) *Bookings can be made via the official website. *Event in Japanese.

Media: Photography - Party
(2017-09-08 - 2017-09-30)

This exhibition, “Family Regained,” will be comprised of a selection of Eiki Mori’s latest works from a photo book of the same title to be published from Nanarokusha in fall 2017. The title is borrowed from the epic “Paradise Regained” (1671) by English poet John Milton. With family as a theme, Mori shoots himself with friends, lovers, and families at their places using the self-timer function. Filtered through the fundamental color of blood, a red scenery arises apart from its surrounding society, as if a theatrical act. The concentration of this theme implies retrieving and connecting with those who live together, a microcosmos of the social community in diversified forms and sexualities. It is an observation of the family, a sociological performance that sublimates the visual art medium, and an aesthetical or political aim to spread a visualized and acknowledgeable image. Mori’s photography and contemporary families synchronize to form an insight into today’s idea of a family. “Reincarnate, reencounter, re-love and live together. I explore the aspiration dreamed by many lovers, envisioning happiness and love. I go and meet the family in the future on the behalf of them,” Mori says. Emphasized in theatrical living spaces with his friends, this new series by Mori catapults viewers to solidarity, cohesion, and the spirits of those connected.

Do you have a favorite artwork? If you do, you would use the phrase “o-ki ni iri” to express that in Japanese. We often use the word “favorite” in daily life to talk about things we like, but for some reason it’s much harder to use in the context of art. One explanation for this may be that we do not consider art to be part of our everyday lives. In this exhibition, ACT will display and sell works by selected artists. Why not discover your next “o-ki ni iri” piece here and make it part of your day-to-day. Venue: 2F Act2

The show will feature valuable works borrowed from across the country, including private collections that will be on public display for the first time. It will shed light on how the “Togo style” came into being, beginning with his avant-garde paintings that are considered the first “Futurist-type” works in Japan, followed by his representative work “Street Performers” that combine compositional beauty and lyricism, and depictions of women that were beloved by many people after World War II. The highlights of the exhibition are Togo’s rarely seen works from the 1930s, such as large decorative paintings for the Marubutsu Department Store co-created with Tsuguharu Foujita. Through approximately 60 works of art, as well as publications and photographs, the exhibit will look back on the diverse talents of Togo who rose to enormous fame during Japan’s turbulent times.
