This event has ended.

Yamashita’s work has an ominous look, but is consistently mixed with a humor. This view is always cleverly expressed through his installations that creatively manipulate the spatial and material limitations.Yamashita often uses the character “Tobimaru”, mascot the Yokohama Flügels, a professional soccer team that no longer exists, due to a merger with another team. Thus, Yamashita revives Tobimaru through his sculptures and installations. By intentionally making the work look improvised or prop-like, he alludes to the incomplete fragility of the subject matter. Additionally, Yamashita is conscious of site-specificity, and aims to reveal the true nature of the location by creating installations that interfere with it.
