Taku Anekawa Exhibition
This event has ended.
Taku Anekawa is an artist who works with thread, making drawings or silkscreening graphics onto a canvas, and then sewing thread onto them. Anekawa's sewing method is different from that used in regular embroidery, allowing the individual colors of the intertwined thread to show through clearly, sometimes even prompting them to stray outside the boundaries of the canvas they are meant to cling to. While embroidering thread is a way of giving expression to impulses that erupt from within, Anekawa's art is perhaps also a means of interrogating the existence of thread as a material.
Anekawa began using thread as a creative material in earnest in 2004, and has since continued in this vein, seemingly obsessed with something about it. He has since participated in several solo and group exhibitions both in Japan and abroad, exhibiting his work in stores and making props for live performances as part of collaborations with fashion brands, as well as showing work in print media like magazines. As the president of a design company, Anekawa handles art direction, planning and illustration, while also winning high praise for his work as a digital content creator.
This exhibition is made up of two parts, the first running from September 26th to October 13th, and the second from October 31st to November 30th. A thread installation will be showcased in the first half, while a group of canvas-based works will be exhibited during the second half.
