poster for Tomoko Konoike "Inter-Traveller"

This event has ended.

This exhibition offers the first comprehensive overview of Konoike's current and past work. Here, Konoike presents the internal world of human beings as a planet, the Earth. Employing most of her old and new works, Konoike will construct the internal world of the earth in the gallery space in which every one of us will become "inter travelers" on a journey to the center of the earth, experiencing the grand mythologies created by the artist.

Pre-Event "The birth of the mythological tales"
In this event held before the exhibition, the artist will talk about her work and what she wants to express. There will also be a screening of the footage of the artist at work for this exhibition.

デジタル的でなく、ぽん、と出てきた発想によるすばらしさではなく、練り込まれた作品として久しぶりにすごい、と感じた展示。
ただ作品を集めてきて展示したわけではなく、アーティストの意図をもって作品をならべ、空間を作り、場合のよっては作品をその場所で製作している。

これまでの代表作と新作で構成された、この展覧会自体が鴻池さんの作品であると思いました。今後、どんな作品をみれるのか、それもとっても楽しみです。

物語の中に、迷い込んだみたいな、不思議な空間でした!緻密に描かれた作品が多いので、普段コンタクトやメガネをお使いの方は、お持ちになることをおすすめします。
