Ai Sasaki “Four Songs”
This event has ended.
The 21st Century Art Project has been established as part of the celebrations of 40 years of the Bernard Buffet Museum and aims to provide a new bridge towards painters working in our contemporary age. The first artist to be introduced as part of this project is Ai Sasaki, in her fist solo exhibition in an art museum space. Her paintings of birds dancing the skies offer up dream like images and fragments of nostalgic landscapes, directly grasping upon the vivid life which stems from nature, enwrapping the onlooker with simultaneous strength and softness. Setting out upon a world tour in 2005 she has depicted numerous landscapes, tales and mythologies upon the flat plane of the canvas and in recent years has come to collaborate with a poet in the “Walking” project as well as devise intricate wall paintings of sugar, softly opening up into new fields. This exhibition presents the work of Sasaki divided into 4 songs of material and technique.
