"Gulliver's Dining Table" Exhibition
This event has ended.
This exhibition showcases new artworks that address the issue of scale by artists such as Lilian Bourgeat, whose practice of enlarging and blowing up everyday, mundane motifs and objects has won him much acclaim; and Akira Minagawa, who designed the uniforms and blue elephant characters for the Zou-no-hana cafe. Minegawa is showing a new work made out of dotted fabric.
In addition, the new art unit Chu Trip, made up of Junpei Katsumi who runs the Kamakura-based bakery Paradise Alley, and Yuri Nomura, who made her directorial debut with the film "Eatrip", will be developing a special "Gulliver's Dinner" menu to be served on Bourgeat's dining table set.
The sensation of being thrown off balance by the striking discrepancies in the scale of these "Gulliver" works is perhaps reminiscent of the bewilderment faced by Yokohama's residents at the time of its opening as an international port. This exhibition hopes to explore and investigate the creative possibilities presented by such an experience.
