This event has ended.
8/ Art Gallery/ Tomio Koyama Gallery and Tomio Koyama Gallery (Roppongi) will concurrently hold two solo exhibitions by internationally prominent Cambodian artist Sopheap Pich.
Both titled “Desire Line,” the name came about during the artist’s stay at the Rauschenberg Residency in Florida (2017), where he found a path that had naturally emerged though the process of people repeatedly walking through the forest. This exhibition will feature approximately 12 new works, including “Miroiise” and “Moonstone,” two works employing marble and rosewood roots that represent a more abstract yet intimate direction in his exploration of three-dimensional works. Also included in the show are new large-scale drawings produced using natural earth pigments that were created with a bamboo stick that the artist presses repeatedly on paper to create resonant and rhythmic lines in space. These works are progressions from the drawings shown at this year’s Venice Biennale.
It is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Japan.
from October 27, 2017 to November 20, 2017
