This event has ended.
The keyword behind the works from the Hara Museum Collection featured in this exhibition is “layer,” a reference not only to a work’s structural aspect, but also to the idea of “layers of meaning.” In his assemblage of stacked portraits, Christian Boltanski has created an altar with each young girl’s face a metaphor for a memory of life and death. Lee Ufan’s work is comprised of a repeating pattern of dark, fading lines against white negative space. In Yoshitomo Nara’s work, we sense both hope and despair in the eyes of a girl standing in a war zone, eyes that seem to trace the lyrics of an anti-war song. In Kohei Nawa’s work, a stuffed doe is covered with transparent spheres that transform its existence into a “PixCell” (i.e., “picture” + “cell”). Explore the layered meanings in these and other works.
