poster for Kohei Nawa "Synthesis"

This event has ended.

Solo exhibition of work by Kohei Nawa (b. 1975), an artist who develops sculpture and spatial expressions utilizing the concept of the "cell". Nawa uses fluid materials and media such as beads, prisms, expanded polyurethane and silicone oil as metaphors for the senses and thoughts of our information society, creating equivocal expressions of the reality of the body, perception, and a sensitivity that wavers between digital and analog.

In addition to his work in a variety of series and categories - "Beads", "Prism", "Liquid", "Glue", "Scum", "Drawing" and more - Nawa is also active and recognized at an international level, collaborating with creators in the fields of music, fashion and product design, as well as producing public art through team projects. This exhibition will explore the origins and boundaries of Nawa's synthetic interface - the interface that connects the senses with materials and our "skin", while simultaneously pondering potential approaches to future work.

あの無数のシャボンの環のようなもので包まれた鹿たちに恋をした。また会いたい。http://ameblo.jp/jinjin0116/entry-10930581781.html

動物のカラダに透明なブツブツがびっしり貼り付いている…というグロテスクなアイディアを、とても美しいものに仕上げる手腕が素晴らしいと思います。 http://cuccino.blog104.fc2.com/blog-entry-143.html

東急渋谷で展示されていた作品や
上野のscaiで展示されていたものなどが
すべて置いてあります・・

無料で見に行ったりしていた作品群が
置いてあるだけなのはちょっと残念。

BEADS、SCUM、LIQUIDなど各シリーズにふさわしい壁、床、照明をしつらえての展示は、エルメスで見た「彫刻」を「インスタレーション」に変容させていた。展示室全体が作品となり、観る者はその中に入っていく。プールの水に浸るように、名和の作品世界に浸る感覚だ。
