This event has ended.
Born in Kochi prefecture in 1940, Sawako Goda began showing a keen interest in beauty of form at an early age. Along with stones, shells, bones, and other natural objects with peculiar shapes, she used to collect pieces of debris such as metal fragments and clocks that had been melted in fires after air raids and lost all use and meaning from districts that had been devastated during the war. She entered Musashino Art School (the current Musashino Art University) in 1959. Upon her graduation in 1963, she began taking a hand in activities such as stage design and publicity for the Jokyo Gekijo (Situation Theater) company led by Juro Kara and the Tenjo Sajiki troupe led by Shuji Terayama. Of the works in various media making up Goda’s corpus, this solo exhibition will center on the iconic oil paintings and drawings of movie stars and eyes that she made during the significant decades from the 1970s to the 2000s.
