Masaru Iwai : "Dancing Cleansing" TSCA


NEW EXHIBITION

 

Masaru Iwai was born in 1975 in Tokyo. He completed his doctorate degree in Fine Arts at Tokyo University of the Arts in 2009. Iwai incorporates the juxtaposition of cleaning/trash into his artwork under the overarching theme of “cleaner’s high”. Using a broad array of mediums such as installation, video, and performance, he makes a display of the desire intrinsic to our daily lives to clean, and furthermore he shifts the focus by questioning that cyclical action. Iwai’s solo exhibitions include Clean up 1. 2. 3. at Art Center Ongoing in Tokyo (2009) and Cleaner’s high #1 at Otto Maintzheim Gallery in Tokyo (2008). Group exhibitions include Re:membering – Next of Japan at Alternative Space LOOP in Korea (2009) and Double Cast at Tokyo Wonder Site in Tokyo (2007).

Naoki Honjo : LIGHT HOUSE Tokyo | Skåne


NEW EXHIBITION

 

Naoki Honjo

Born 1978, Tokyo. Studied media art at Tokyo Polytechnic University Faculty of Arts.
Honjo photographs landscapes and buildings in the context of communities and human intervention, presenting them as though they were phenotypes observed within nature.
He has garnered attention for his soft pictures, which he creates from a constructed layering of elements, including his preference for film, use of 4×5 large format cameras, aerial shooting, and his worldwide selection of shot locations. His photography book, small planet, received the 32nd Kimura Ihei Award, and his works are housed in collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

 

The upcoming exhibition of Honjo’s works will be held at two galleries. On display at the nap gallery will be his most well-known works, aerial shots of residential neighborhoods in Skane County, Sweden. On display at TSCA will be new works alongside unpublished works from 10 years ago, shots of residential areas in Tokyo cut off from the ground. Through Honjo’s filter, sky and ground, opposite though they are, become one.

We invite you to take this opportunity to see Honjo’s work on display at the two galleries.

Mai Yamashita + Naoto Kobayashi : "The Four Souvenirs and The Book" TSCA


NEW EXHIBITION

 

Mai Yamashita / Born in 1976 in Chiba, Japan, PhD Tokyo University of The Arts

Naoto Kobayashi / Born in 1974 in Chiba, Japan, M.A. Tokyo University of The Arts

Yamashita and Kobayashi met at high school and started working together in 2000. Since moving to Germany in 2004, they have been working and living in Berlin and have traveled the world working on their projects. They have had solo exhibitions at Kunstverein Gottingen (Germany, 2011) and Kunsthalle Lingen (Germany, 2007) among others. Group shows include ARS06 at The Museum of Contemporary Art KIASMA (Helsinki, 2006); Re-imagining Asia at Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin, 2008); Things That Only An Artist Can Do at MARCO- Museo de Arte Contemporanea (Vigo, Spain, 2010); Aichi Triennale 2010; and Yokohama Triennale 2011.

 

Meandering thoughts and memories form a sort of consciousness that, through the artists’ simple actions, refreshes our own thoughts as real potential. “Major League Birdwatching” is a new piece based on stereotypical images of America and the contrasting reality found through their daily life experiences.
