This event has ended.

Aya Momose, known for her work which deals with the topics of voice and body, re-opens ongoing ques­tions from within her prac­tice that con­cern the act of watch­ing mov­ing images, via mov­ing images them­selves. Her work ex­poses the mo­ment of in which sub­jec­tiv­i­ty can waver, and the reality of the un­cer­tainty of our re­la­tionships with others.

In her solo ex­hi­bi­tion I.C.A.N.S.E.E.Y.O.U, her first in Tokyo in three years, the art­ist ex­am­ines the po­si­tioning of the sub­ject - and the con­cur­rent waves of emo­tion this pro­duces – through the logic of the gaze. The ex­hi­bi­tion brings to­geth­er three new works that em­ploy ges­tures, such as a move­ment of eyes, or sign lan­guage, to in­ves­ti­gate the im­bal­ance be­tween the one who is seeing and the one who is seen. In so doing she high­lights the stag­gering dis­crep­an­cies that occur in a re­la­tionship with another.
