Yuki Hashimoto "Confessions of a Display"
This event has ended.
Hashimoto exhibited his work at the Torrance Art Museum this spring. At the exhibition Hashimoto showed a series of sculptures featuring a relief of a girl with decorative flowers on a mockup of cellphone. It represents the strange evolution of Japanese mobile phones which were first developed in USA. Hashimoto's work also expresses an irony in contemporary humanity in which all of someone's personality can be represented in such a small box.
In this exhibition Hashimoto will show two series. One is a series of cellphone sculptures, mobile phones with the owner's face which is set in reverse by "persona marketing". The other is a new series, "Recollection of Traces". The artist thinks that only the traces of fingertips on the display of mobile phones become the evidence that we are living today.
