Hideyuki Igarashi Exhibition
This event has ended.
Hideyuki Igarashi is an artist whose practice ranges widely across painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation and social engagement. Recently he has worked with Natsuyuki Nishiyama in the production of a collaborative work, as well as joining in research upon the expansion and contraction of the image in the analysis of contemporary painting. It is through this mutual analysis of each others work that the locus of their practice may be glimpsed, providing valuable insights even in the context of art history. At the same time his 20 year exploration of painting as a communication tool with people with development difficulties has left an impression on pschoanalysis and psychiatric research.
Igarashi confronts the essential questions of the visual and vision, linking with deeper philosophical questions of intersubjectivity, while also investigating the very fundamental human act of drawing.
This exhibition presents over 5000 works produced in drawing sessions held over 20 years between Igarashi and Masanori Kurachi(who has a range of conditions including autism), accompanied by a select collection of work ranging the span of his career, including painting which captures the very inner life of its subject and photography which appears to return us to the plain of our memory.
