Ends in 30 days
In this exhibition, Fujisaki will present new works of his video series “metaball,” which he has been working on since 2015. This series is a video-based work capturing how various liquids around the artist physically interfere with each other. Metaball is a computer graphics term for n-dimensional organic objects that describe the process of multiple objects approaching and fusing together to become one object. As the word describes, the appearance of liquids, which are familiar materials repeatedly approaching and fusing with each other, is also felt as an organic movement.
The new work metaball_plasma membrane (2020) is unveiled for the first time. The plasma membrane (cell membrane), which is the biological membrane that separates the inside and outside of the cells of an organism, plays a role in controlling the entry and exit of substances into and out of cells and organelles by “selective permeability” for ions and organic compounds. Perhaps Fujisaki, who confronts the materials in a meditative state, becomes a semipermeable membrane himself and represents his physicality through the phenomena that the material exhibits. In addition, Kana Kawanishi Photography (Nishi Azabu) will also hold the solo exhibition “colored oil” featuring the photographic works by Ryoichi Fujisaki during the same period.
