Jaume Plensa "Silent Voices"
This event has ended.
Seven years after Jaume Plensa held an exhibition at Tamada's gallery space, drawing in many visitors and garnering critical acclaim, he is returning to exhibit in this gallery. This time Tamada Projects will show Plensa's recent works. The artist has became one of the most renowned artists in the world since completing his major project, the "Crown Fountain" at the Millennium Park in Chicago, which opened to the public in 2004. Plensa has also been active in the field of stage design, and designed the sets for the opera "Le Chateau de Barbe-Bleue" (Bartok) and "Le Journal d'un Disparu" (Janacek), premiering in summer 2008 in Tokyo and Kobe. The current exhibition also demonstrates his keen sense of space and it is a unique opportunity to view the renewed world of Plensa, in the context of the renovated space in Tsukishima, where historical and contemporary currents cross over.
50% of each entry ticket sold will be shared and donated to humanitarian medical NGO Médecins Du Monde and art-related Non-Profit Gadago, the organization running Tokyo Art Beat.

Internationally acclaimed Spanish artist Jaume Plensa has been active in wide ranging fields from sculpture and public art installations to stage design. His second Japanese exhibition since 1999, “Silent Voices”, is currently showing at the Museum at Tamada Projects.

Listen to what you see. Feel the silence. Witness the words coming out from the still bodies.
Memory, Reality, Identity - we are structured by social influences - a lot of traumatic experiences and disorders. Something that won't speak out loud by itself. We hold it and suffer in silence.
I felt a strong sense of solitude from each body sitting on a ground in silence. I recalled my sympathy for him - my solitude man whom I could not give up on caring about for years. I wondered how much pain and solitude from people I deal with I have to feel and care about. I've always wished if I could have healed them. Then I realized I'm the one who has kept the pain and solitude. I first need to heal myself.
Nonsense letters form a shape of a man. It's Chaotic, Noisy, and Busy. He is faceless. A stranger meets strangers - there are plenty of them here indeed! But he's still alone in the chaos. It's called Tokyo Soul. It's neither good nor bad.
