This event has ended.
This exhibition, entitled “The Search For Languorous Magic,” is Atsushi Kaga’s first solo show in Japan. Heavy “languor” combined with uplifting “magic” is an excellent expression of both what Kaga achieves artistically and the way he does it. His art is born of two contradictory elements working in tandem, turning its gaze on the stuff of our everyday lives to reveal new discoveries and unfamiliar elements. The exhibition combines a characteristic Kaga installation made up of many small pieces on wooden boards with other canvas and sculpture works. This is the first opportunity for a Japanese audience to savor the bizarre world of Kaga—easy to adore, but far less easy to explain.
