This event has ended.
Nerhol’s exhibition “Promenade” is currently being held from May 21st to August 28th at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, marking the duo’s very first museum presentation within Japan. “Promenade” comprises extremely large-scale works measuring 240cm high by 300cm wide that have been based on “multiple – roadside tree,” Nerhol’s latest series that appropriates a felled roadside tree as its motif. As suggested by the word ‘multiple’ (that which is mass produced), Nerhol sliced a single roadside tree into thin increments and documented the process one by one through over a hundred photographs. Fifty different patterns were selected from this accumulation of images, produced as A3 size works and published in a catalogue in correspondence to the exhibition. The exhibition at Yutaka Kikutake Gallery will present the 50 original works featured in the catalogue, replacing the exhibited works on an irregular basis so as to introduce the entire series.
