This event has ended.

In “Life of Athletics” the documentation of photography and video works by Yuki Kobayashi, an artist based in Europe, are exhibited. “Life of Athletics”, is the performance series begun in 2014 by Kobayashi. Kobayashi uses sports as material to seek the limit of human physicality, and looking at the roots of gender construction, standing in between an ideal of equality and reality of discriminational stereotypes. The costume of a female sport outfit represents the visual image of surreal human body. The outfit is presenting the identity of people and it also has the meaning of choice of sexuality. In the performance of “Life of Athletics”, the gap of male body and female outfit is filled by the physical movements. In this exhibition, Kobayashi represents the documentation of photography and video with new performance “Chromosome”. Performance “Chromosome” are held on Mon 8th October, Tue 9th October and Wed 10th October. Ticket required. Admission free for exhibition.
