Zai Nomura “Additional Fugitive”
This event has ended.
While developing a range of sculptural works utilizing materials such as beeswax, solidified oils and delicate plastic Zai Nomura has also continuously built on a practice of photography. Bringing a consistency to this range of expressions is the continued attempt to capture the essence of the physical which is so difficult to visualize in its confrontation with its own extinction. Since his sculptural work was damaged during a stay in London, Nomura has taken a shift away from sculpture to give greater focus to photography, a necessary decision perhaps for him in the struggle born from the contradiction of eternally fixing upon a form of expression which tackles the confrontation of annihilation. Nomura’s previous exhibition at Harmas Gallery consisted of sculpture which exploits the characteristics of resin to form shapes seemingly impossible to produce by the human hand, while also presenting photographs which appear to capture a certain physicality invisible to the human eye. 2 years on this exhibition features photography work which has come to gain a more sculptural presence, developing a series which capture the moment in which the unique features of a material reveal themselves.
