poster for Stasis Field

This event has ended.

*Tokyo Arts and Space Hongo is temporarily closed from Feb. 29 to Mar. 31.

“Stasis field” is a term that has been used in science fiction novels and games, to refer to an area in which time seemingly stands still or is significantly delayed, and contents appear motionless. Due to the standstill and crystallization of time in a stasis field, objects in that area are in a state where they can be closely observed or slowed down to such an extent that their shapes appear distorted. Experiences we make in such special kinds of situations may function as turning points that change existing ideas and previous perceptions. In their works, the three artists featured in this exhibition stop or delay time in order to make it observable from their own respective points of view, and produce works of art in which they actively respond to and creatively express the differences, shifts, and distortions that result from such temporal stagnation. In times when social life is increasingly dominated by the acceleration and quick processing of all kinds of matters, this exhibition is an attempt to introduce “stasis fields” in order to transform spaces and perceptions.
