This event has ended.

To “drive the car on fire” is a Japanese expression that means to be in a great financial difficulty. Yuka Tsuruno Gallery will host a 3-day event with Yuichiro Tamura, a Nissan Art Award 2017 finalist who finds himself in dire straits. He presents two photographs of a Nissan Gloria and other works that address the question of glory. Several products such as the plated airline cutleries presented in “G,” his solo exhibition at Yuka Tsuruno Gallery in March, will also be on offer. In addition, his “Iridescent Dream/Midnight Rainbow” shown at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre in Thailand is on special display in the gallery’s small space with no plans for a future presentation of this piece. On December 23, the last day of this event, the artist himself will present a monologue that looks back on 2017.
