"Garbage, IT and Me" Exhibition
This event has ended.
In August 2006, the year before the gallery opened, an exhibition entitled ‘SCOUTED!’ was held by the same three artists who will join this exhibition. ‘SCOUTED!’ was extremely well received and it became one of the motivations for the gallery director Yukari Mitsuma to establish YUKARI ART CONTEMPORARY.
4 years have passed since ‘SCOUTED!’ and each of the 3 artists is making high-flying progress.
Yodogawa-Technique is an art unit run by Hideaki Shibata and Kazuya Matsunaga, based out of the river terraces of Yodogawa in Osaka, creating artworks using flotsam, driftwood and other waste materials. As well as exhibiting extensively in Japan, they have been invited to show their work in many locations abroad such as Indonesia, Germany and so on. They have received several awards including the prestigious ‘Sakuya Konohana Award’ in 2009.
Taihei Shii has been working with his unique theme ‘Art in the Internet Era’. His latest web projects include "TENKA TAIHEI Project ver.2", which fuses a free style of Haiku and the newest Internet systems.
Kazuharu Ishikawa bases his works on simple drawings that he does in sketchbooks. He then recreates selected images with thread that he glues onto canvases, plexiglass and so on.
