This event has ended.

Mizuma Art Gallery is pleased to present KiyaKiya, Akino Kondoh's first solo exhibition in 3 years.

Kondoh has been working in New York, where she established herself in the autumn of 2008.

The artist, who in 2010 received a Youtube Play Award for her animation "Ladybirds' Requiem (digest version)" at the Guggenheim Museum and took part in "Domani: The Art of Tomorrow" at the National Art Center, is widely active at home and abroad.

The present exhibition includes Kondoh's new animation work "KiyaKiya" as well as drawings, oil paintings and sketches. The term "KiyaKiya" comes from the old Japanese expression "mune ga kiyakiya suru." Kondoh first encountered it in Tatsuhiko Shibusawa's “Introduction to the collection of girls” in the chapter writen about "childhood experiences." This expression, which describes “an enigmatic, nostalgic, disturbing feeling,” or an impression of “deja-vu”, is at the origin of the "KiyaKiya" series.
