This event has ended.
Kengo Kito produces artworks incorporating colorful materials common in everyday life using a variety of expressive methods, including large-scale installation, sculpture and painting. Featured in the exhibition title, the term “multiple star” refers to a system of three or more stars that appear to be in close proximity to each other when viewed from the earth. This is the second installment of the three part ten-month exhibition currently being held in Gallery A at Hara Museum Arc.
In Part I, Kito unveiled an installation comprising 1,300 hula hoops, a favorite motif of the artist, which filled the large space with color and liveliness. Part II will showcase new artworks that include a number of large-scale flat pieces and a ceiling-hung assemblage constructed from net and string. This array of works represents an ambitious exploration by the artist of the relationship between line, color and space, and may also be seen as a harbinger of the works to come in Part III.
