Stickymonger’s interest in the fluidity and stickiness of blackness can be traced back to her experience of playing with dense black crude oil that she found in canisters hidden at the gasoline stand she lived next to when growing up in Korea.

(2018-02-11 - 2018-03-08)

Hitomi Takahashi traveled to Tokyo from the city of Izumo in Shimane prefecture, south Japan in April 2016, spending most of her time walking around areas such as Shibuya, Harajuku and Shinjuku and shooting the people she saw there. Photographing without using the flash, regardless of whether it was day and night, she began to narrow down to a focus on female subjects of around the same age. Of this Takahashi has said, “I tried superimposing myself on these women, exploring through them lifestyles and futures that aren’t or can’t be choosen.” The various facial expressions visible among the crowds give a sense of the complex feelings and diversity of these young women. This is Takahashi’s first solo exhibition.

Natsumi Wada “Tacit Creole”
at NTT ICC Inter Communication Center
Tokyo Opera City Tower 4F, 3-20-2 Nishishinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 163-1404 Japan
Media: Installation - Video and Film - Media Arts - Sound - Talks
(2017-12-19 - 2018-03-11)

This exhibition brings together three works that have been produced in collaboration with individuals who take a variety of different approaches to perception. Based on the unique perceptions and memories of each collaborator, the works presented explore the possibility of constructing the world from scratch through different experimental actions. A maze of sound and tactile experiences, “altag” is a work that can be experienced only through touch and the auditory. Meanwhile, “An image of” uses three experimental videos on the theme of memory and imagination to express things that are hard to communicate through language, as if tracing them by hand. Finally, “Signed” is a work that invites a highly personal viewer experience, whereby the individual movement of a hand in front of the device generates a unique narrative. As Michael Polanyi demonstrates with his concept of “tacit knowing,” there are areas of knowledge that cannot be taught or learned simply through language. In this exhibition an attempt is made to open up the world by reworking how people’s individual worlds can be understood, and how they can connect with others’ experiences. Furthermore, through these works the aim is to explore the possibility of extracting tacit knowledge and making it Creole - a new mother tongue to be shared by the community. [Related Event] Artist Talk Date: Feb. 24 (Sat), 14:00- Speakers: Mai Nagumo, Yukio Nozawa, Yuriko Kawasaki Moderator: Minoru Hatanaka(ICC) Venue: ICC 4F special stage Capacity: 150 (first-come-first-served basis) Admission: Free *Event in Japanese with sign language interpretation

Centering on a new installation by Ryuichi Sakamoto and Shiro Takatani, “Is Your Time” follows on from the recent “Ryuichi Sakamoto, async” exhibition at The Watari Museum of Contemporary Art. After encountering a piano in a school in Natori, Miyagi Prefecture devastated by the tsunami following the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, Sakamoto sensed the forces of nature had retransformed this representative modern musical instrument into a mere object. Witness how they attempt to retrieve the music by creating occasions for experiencing music in ways other than perceiving physical sounds.

F.P.M.S.

F.P.M.S.
at Hagiwara Projects
101 Sun View Heights Shinjuku, 3-18-2 Nishi Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 160-0023
Media: Painting - Party
(2018-02-25 - 2018-03-25)

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.

Hozumi Miyamoto’s warmly toned oil paintings evoke sepia photographs and postcards, resulting in unusual perspectives of distance. The people appearing in these works resemble dolls or figurines in a diorama. Miyamoto uses photographs printed on regular paper with insufficient ink to create these works, deepening the relationship between this process and the faded colors on the canvas while rejecting Western traditions of perspective to create a unique sense of space.

(2018-02-02 - 2018-03-31)

Sexual love and the pain of living are regular subjects in Mariko Matsushita’s works. Her painting harbors powerful energy, each of her works produced through an intimate relationship between the model and the artist herself. The exhibition title “Raw” embodies ideas relating to an imagined future and universe, as well as the soul seeking out a primitive and mystic “life.” In 2016, Matsushita won the grand prize for the 2nd CAFAA Award sponsored by the Contemporary Art Foundation, which meant she could join a three-months residency program at the Delfina Foundation in London from July to September. During this residency, she researched and developed different expressive outputs aside from her usual paintings, introducing a new spectrum of media to her body of work. This exhibition will present unreleased paintings from 2016 up to the latest ones produced this year, together with work produced in London, including video performance and photography, created in collaboration with photographer Mikito Tateisi. Her video performance, “Walking with Meat” (video + sound, 5min) is a metaphor for her life, expressed by walking though the streets of London holding a huge lump of flesh, while “Little Fox in London” (video + sound, 5 min) unfolds within a childish kitsch world through a playful search for foxes in downtown London and her bedroom. In addition, her nude self-portrait “Raw,” shot in her room in London where she spent three month, will be on show.
