Enrico Isamu Ōyama’s solo exhibition “Found Object” (COURTYARD HIROO Gallery)


 Enrico Isamu Ōyama’s solo exhibition “Found Object” will be held from September 1st (Friday) through September 30th (Saturday) at COURTYARD HIROO Gallery.

Ōyama will showcase 15 new pieces of his “Found Object” series at this exhibition. The series features Quick Turn Structure, an abstract motif Ōyama applies on a range of surface of anonymous objects, such as framed drawings, photographs and prints which he finds at thrift stores in New York and other US cities. Ōyama starts off creating pieces of the series by looking for and encountering random objects which locations he finds them in are marked on the work captions. Faded, stained paper and damaged frames let viewers imagine the past life of those anonymous objects. This is his first exhibition which places sole emphasis on the “Found Object” series. 
 
As a closing program of the exhibition, a collaborative performance between Ōyama and dancers from Co. YAMADAUN will take place at 18:30 on September 30th (Saturday), the final day of this exhibition.
