This event has ended.
Following his recent solo exhibitions “Dear Tea Bowl” (Salon 94, New York, 2015), “From Tea Bowl” (Alison Jacques Gallery, London, 2016), and “Good Morning, Tea Bowl” (Pierre Marie Giraud, Brussels, 2017), the title “I’m Home, Tea Bowl” suggests another of Takuro Kuwata’s dialogues with tea bowls. Kuwata has come to create sculptures in the form of tea bowls as a development in relation to his sculptural work on tea bowls. In this exhibition Kuwata begins to speak, both figuratively and literally, as an artist who has returned from abroad, addressing tea bowls that he has worked on for number of years from a new perspective. The pure joy and amazement that the viewer experiences when looking at Kuwata’s work stems from the fact that the artist fosters the same connection while creating them. Reflecting our times while being rooted in tradition, these bowls are full of a sense of liberation and possibility. This exhibition will feature about 20 new works, including both tea bowls and sculptures.
