Haruo Mitsuta "Jizai"
This event has ended.
Haruo Mitsuta (b.1980 in Tottori), who completed MFA in Metal Carving at Tokyo University of the Arts, has developed his technique at creating Jizai Okimono - a kind of Japanese traditional metal craft work originated in Edo period. He has been presenting life-sized insects which are lifelike in detail, mainly in craft field.
At our 2009 group show 'Moeglichkeit II', which was the first attempt for him to exhibit at a contemporary art gallery, the works by Mitsuta were highly acclaimed by a lot of viewers. Then, we are finally holding his solo show to meet viewers' expectations.
Various types of technology allow us to create things beyond reality, yet if you see Mitsuta's show, you may feel an infinite possibility of handwork.

Opening Reception on 2010-01-15 from 18:00
