This event has ended.

“Positive transference” is a psychological term which, in a narrow sense, refers to the development of affection toward a medical practitioner by a patient. Chiyuki Sakagami has created abstract drawings, oil paintings, and sculptures that evoke images of primitive life forms and bacteria from eons back. Her most representative work uses media such as watercolor, pencil, ink, crystal, and lapiz lazuli pigment on paper to create a predominantly blue canvas surface reinforced with multiple layers of images. Sakagami’s work has been featured in museum exhibitions both domestically and abroad, including “Parallel Visions” at Setagaya Art Museum, Tokyo (1993), “Art spiorite Mediumnique Visionnaire” at Halle Saint-Pierre, Paris (1999), “Emotional Drawing” at The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (2008), and “Collection Bruno Decharme – collection abcd” at La Maison Rouge, Paris (2014). The full scope of her work, spanning watercolor, oil painting, and sculpture, was showcased at the Yokohama Triennale in 2014.
