This event has ended.

Muneteru Ujino will present the new work “Plywoody Ozone-So,” which recapitulates the artist’s activities and productions begun in the 1990s. The entrance area will be set up as an visual analogue of the tokonoma (an alcove in the reception room of a traditional Japanese house), where the artist will display the latest works from the “Nippon Series,” a graphic sculpture series that consists of words in the katakana writing system. Katakana letters are used for foreign words to substitute syllables of the words, and Ujino sees Japan as a grafted cultural tree that has grown by accepting foreign concepts through katakana. The exhibition will also be a mini-retrospective of the artist’s early works, including “Twenty One Century,” the very first work of the Nippon Series, among others. It is an opportunity to witness how the pop and glittering works of “Twenty One Century” reflect on “Plywoody Ozone-So” now in 2016.
