Mitsume presents its first curated group show since opening its doors last year, under the title of “Afterwards”. Here the images produced by artists take on a further life of their own through the incorporation of a consistent external element or the flux of the environment and surrounding phenomenon. Reflecting on the shift between one point and another in time, the history of expression up until now and the cross over between existing genres which becomes the origin of a transmuting dynamism, this show celebrates the refusal to be pinned to a static, determined form. The six artists of this exhibition - Suguru Takeuchi, Sasaki, Maiko Kobayashi, Masaaki Oyamada, Nasepop, Kenichi Nakamura - each adopt a singular approach or motif, whether it be the taking of a photo everyday for 4 years, or continuing to depict the same repetitive image for over 20 years, and, while difference accumulates in time, all threads seem to tie as one.
