Julia Chiang “Coming Together, Coming Apart”
This event has ended.
Brooklyn based Chinese-American artist Julia Chiang launches her first solo exhibition in Japan with a collection of new work. Having graduated from New York University in 2000, Chiang has gone on to hold numerous exhibitions across Europe and America, and as a testament to her popularity she was listed in Modern Painters as one of the 100 artists to watch in 2011. Chiang creates sculpture, installation, painting and collage from a plethora of materials, with well known works including candy ring pops embossed with the simple phrase “All for you”, ceramic chains and glass earthenware apples, each of which explicates the gap between material and context. In this exhibition she draws on all manner of images from the crevices of the body, spaces between trees, differences in country and generation, inner physical pressures, maps, rivers, waves, snakes, flowers and fish scales, capturing with precision and beauty the constant change of the things which surround us in everyday. She holds up a mirror which reflects the dichotomy of strength and fragility, pain and happiness, fear and courage, which comes to grasp upon our own incomplete human existence.
