Toshiya Motai Exhibition / 母袋俊也「Print works ポートフォリオ《現出の場》/モノタイプ《mt21「もう一つの世界」に回り込んで》」

9 June – 4 July, 2016

“The Place of Appearance” is, for the artist, a place where a picture appears, where there is a slight overlay of the real world (Real) and another world (Idea). Toshiya Motai has previously attempted to direct interest toward pictures that exist in such a place through installation. The monotype print consists of one transcribed image achieved from pressing paper to an aluminum plate. Howeverm this manner of applying pressure to bring forth an image is, for the artist, reminiscent of the “Shroud of Turin,” the burial cloth believed to bear the printed form of the crucified Jesus Christ. Motai says that the shroud has made him think about the place of pictures and where they appear.
