poster for Shiseido Art Egg: Shunsuke Kano Exhibition

This event has ended.

At first glance Shunsuke Kano’s works resemble sculptures made from the banding often used on wooden packing crates. Upon closer examination, though, they reveal themselves to actually be photographs of the banding adhered to a wooden box, then wrapped in another band, photographed and pasted on again in a repeated process of photographing the object and then adhering the photo to it, building layers of embedded images on the final sheet of printing paper.

In this exhibition, Kano presents new sculptures created through this elaborate process and printed photographic works emphasizing the fact that photographs are merely phenomena on printing paper. Kano works with the relationships between objects and images he finds around him, encouraging viewers to become more conscious and questioning of many of the “pre-supposed structures” we so often overlook.
