This event has ended.

Internationally-active artist Jarg Geismar is currently based in Tokyo. He recently exhibited at the 2008 Prague Biennale. This solo exhibition features his colorful, supple drawings rendered on transparent plastic board in a unique, transformative installation placed in this bright gallery space with large windows.

Geismar makes works with a close relationship to the place where he lives, its landscape, air and people. These works take various forms ranging from photography and film to drawing and installation. His works are carefree and open, and appear to have been created naturally or by chance - but what in fact is "chance"?

This exhibition, "By Chance," offers the view that the outward form and appearance of a work is not directly related to anything. Yet compared to human life where so little is predictable, these "chance" works produced through the act of the artist's living, walking, thinking and socializing with his environment offer us the chance of encounter with Geismar's work, giving us another chance to rethink the meaning of the art that has come to be a familiar part of our lives.
