Tsutomu Yamamoto “Sequence”
This event has ended.
Tsutomu Yamamoto was born in 1980 in Okayama. His major solo exhibitions include “DICE PROJECT005-cloud” at magical, ARTROOM in 2009, and “Waving Forms ” at CLEAR GALLERY in 2016, and“divided wave” at BLOCK HOUSE / TS4312. This is his first solo exhibition in four years, following his presentation at Art Fair Tokyo in 2018. He will also be exhibiting at “VOCA 2020” at the Ueno Royal Museum in 2020.
Yamamoto will be showing his own work through what he sees and feels through his fieldwork. We try to find a connection between our relationship with our environment. But the object and even ourselves are shifting, and so, like the focus of the lens, it’s like a momentary encounter. The main focus of his work is on the sensation of the world. He has been working on how to express on a flat surface the things that fluctuate and the relationships that are invisible to the eye.
In his work, he has used celestial objects as a motif, connecting constellations and fixed stars to form a net. The starry sky reflected on the surface of the lake repeats its distortion, disappearance, and appearance in the midst of waves and other surface transformations. The changes in the starry sky and the surface of the water, which never stops changing except for the operation of celestial bodies, are connected and distorted, leaving the damage and bubbles intact in the process of production. Yamamoto hopes to incorporate unexpected phenomena from the subject’s relationship to different times and to himself.
