"100 degrees Fahrenheit vol.2" Exhibition
This event has ended.
It is said that our normal body temperature is 98.6°F and we need medical treatment if our body temperature exceeds 100°F. So we set 100°F as the temperature at which the body begins to experience harmful effects, and named the exhibition “100 degrees Fahrenheit”.
“100 degrees Fahrenheit vol.0” was held in June 2008 as our first exhibition, and “100 degrees Fahrenheit vol.1” was held on our first anniversary. Both exhibitions showed the heat and energy of the new generation, as exemplified by our name, “CASHI” (which means fahrenheit in Japanese).
In the third part of this series, we are going to exhibit the work of 4 young artists: Kei Umiya’s wood carvings are romantic and detailed and feature nature motifs. The steel work of Tomohiro Inaba is carefully crafted based on the details of his own imagination. Takahiro Toyama’s painting is realistic, calm and somewhat melancholic, using flowers as their main motif. Yugo Isaji uses everyday stationery to produce works that resemble ready-mades.
