Ends in 7 days

鯰 [Namazu] is an art team consisting of three members, Yoshiki Omote, Shoma Fujimura, and Taichi Moriyama. The three individuals, who are also active as artists, have their bases in Toride City, Ibaraki Prefecture, and while focusing on daily drinking parties, they sublimate their everyday life into performances and works that incorporate interactive elements. For example, in the performance “Loading” showcased by 鯰 [Namazu] in Tennozu, Tokyo, in November 2018, the members brought materials, waste, or even the work itself from their studios, and continuously stuck them up on a truck as a performance.

At the first solo exhibition held at Kana Kawanishi Gallery, 鯰 [Namazu] will present a large installation work that will guide viewers to an unprecedented chaotic world that will navigate all to find an exit through observation. In addition, during the exhibition period, the three members will hold an event titled “Real-Life Escape Room de Chill” and will live broadcast how they would “Chill” at the exhibition venue together with the invited guests.
