COLLECTION × Eisaku Ando / COLLECTION × 安藤榮作

1 April – 26 April, 2021

Art that is enriched in times of difficulty and that draws attention is an inherent need. The depth at which people connect with art differs; this exhibit will focus on the act of purchasing art, which is one proactive manner in which people connect with art. This exhibit go beyond the perspectives of the artist or gallery to look at varied perspectives on how art purchases are made, including how they are chosen, and what each piece means to the purchaser.
At this exhibit, the second in the series, “南無地獄極楽大菩薩”, “佛”, and “風” will be put on exhibit for the first time. Each piece was created by Eisaku Ando as commissioned by Hanateba Mitsuru who lives in Tokyo, last year. Hanateba Mitsuru came to know and became interested in Eisaku Ando through his collection of essays (1997) and through him winning the 28th Hirakushi Denchu Award in 2017, and had a chance to meet him, causing Hanateba Mitsuru to propose a collaboration with the works from Yuichi Inoue that he already owned, which lead to the creation of the three pieces of this exhibit.
We will exhibit Ando’s latest work and recent works in the first floor gallery along with these three standout pieces.
