Yoshitaka NANJO (Galerie Grand E’terna à Paris 9/1–9/30)
This exhibition will be held jointly with the Galerie Grand E’terna in the 8th Arrondissement of Paris, France. This year, for the third time, we will be holding an exhibition of Yoshitaka NANJO’s work.
Yoshitaka NANJO actually visits the places he chooses to depict, collecting soil on the spot and using it as a kind of paint to create his works.
In this upcoming exhibition, placing the current landscape side by side with images of the same place evoked by the narratives in novels and films, he reconstructs a landscape in which time visibly connects the two. Through the overlay of the world portrayed in story with the actual landscape, he tries to visualise time, which ceaselessly continues to change the world.
We will exhibit works that were produced during his stay in Kyoto and works that will create in Paris and its suburbs. These new creations will also be exhibited during the 6th Annual Takamatsu Contemporary art that will take place from October 22nd to November 26th, 2017 at the Takamatsu Art Museum. Please feel free to take a look.
