This event has ended.
This exhibition celebrates the publication of Takeshi Hayashi’s monograph “Rough Stones,” which catalogs his entire oeuvre. Occupying the center of the gallery is a sculpture composed of wall clay and roof tiles (old tiles found at the campus of Tokyo National University of Fine Arts) processed through glost firing with Oribe glaze. In this work, a mountain shaped black granite sculpture is placed on an elm wood board, which is mounted on a base made of layers of wall clay. In this exhibition, Hayashi develops views that he presented in his two previous shows at Tokyo Gallery Ishima (2006) and The Voice of Stone (2014), which rendered the gallery’s white space as ‘karesansui’, or Japanese rock garden, through his sculptures. Affixed on the gallery walls are transparent bases, on which red and granite sculptures rest, allowing the visitors to view them from below. In addition to the granite pieces, the show exhibits Hayashi’s new artworks made of an array of materials, such as bronze, wood, Oribe glazed ceramics, and black marble. All of these sculptures come together to form a single installation.
