TAKADA Akiko, Masako October 29 – November 24, 2015
In November, we will be holding the exhibition of Akiko and Masako Takada. Akiko and Masako Takada are identical twin sisters who create three-dimensional and plane surface artworks and installations. Their works use familiar objects and turn them into different scales and values to question our point of view and perception of time, for example by using pumice stones to create an amphitheater, or playing cards to make Persian carpets.
In this exhibition, the artists produced new works on the theme of the “Four Seasons”. On the first floor of the gallery are displayed a figure of Earth and the Sun showing the mechanism that creates the four seasons as well as three drawings created using the sunlight, while on the second floor are exhibited artworks in which the changing seasons are represented by adding nuances to patterns painted on room ornaments. By reducing the temporal and spatial scale in the gallery space which creates a representation of the ordinary, the artists express the magnificent march of time that is the cycle of seasons.
