Takeshi Hayashi “The Voice of Stones”
This event has ended.
At his fourth solo exhibition at Tokyo Gallery + BTAP, Takeshi Hayashi presents his newly released wooden sculptures. Hayashi’s sculptures are characterised by the use of multiple pieces of stone to create abstract spaces. “Voices of Stones” includes a recent work by the same name, which takes inspiration from the furosaki screens used in the tea ceremony. At the opening party for his solo 2006 exhibition, Hayashi performed a tea ceremony atop a marble sculpture entitled “Ishima”, which occupied a floor area equivalent to four and a half tatami mats. Hayashi says that he was drawn to the furosaki partitions used in the tea ceremony, which do not block one’s the view but simply demarcate space. This exhibition also features “Woodpecker”, a new sculpture made with a wooden railing taken from a school building.
