The Container | http://www.the-container.com
A new art space is set to open in Nakameguro next month. The Container is another example of a non-conventional “gallery” that challenges the dominance of the ubiquitous Tokyo white cube. Installed inside Bross hair salon, the shipping container (485x180x177cm) will invite Japanese and overseas artists to make site-specific exhibitions four times a year.
Confirmed participants include local collective Chim Pom and conceptual artist LG Williams.
LG WILLIAMS/ESTATE OF LG WILLIAMS, IN ABSENTIA
Location: SUPER WINDOW PROJECT
February 18th - March 25
“In Absentia” is the second consecutive show of
LG Williams at Super Window Project. Although
if it may be interpreted as a sequel to his previous exhibition “Closed”, and an extended statement about the “absence of art”— or even a
commentary on Hans Christian Andersen’s tale,
“The Emperors New Clothes”— it is more of an
answer to Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous quote “La
pittura è cosa mentale”, and, of course, another
occasion to have some serious fun.
