Asao Tokoro “Rising”
This event has ended.
Asao Tokoro experienced tremendous shock upon hearing of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the US. The events inspired in him a desire to connect through the discontinuity of the world, and it got the artist thinking about the peace mark. The connectivity of this mark became the starting point for his current pattern design. This exhibition will present new work by Tokoro, including the “Rhombus” series, based on the idea that hundreds of millions of patterns can be created by combining striped rhombic parts. Presenting the exponential possibilities of Tokoro’s patterns, the title of the exhibition, “Rising,” expresses his will to stand up and go up against situations and feelings that have become stagnant. Here, old and new works will be interwoven, with both 2D and 3D artworks showcased.
