Shunsuke Kano “Construction Cross Section”
This event has ended.
“Instead of capturing the photo by looking at the image, it must be captured by looking at the physical matter covered by an image.”
True to his intensions, through utilization of photographs, Kano has been presenting works that question the act of looking by generating awareness of the complex layers. Kano’s major shows include Photography Will Be (Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art 2014) and Shunsuke KANO | Jenga and Fountain for the 8th shiseido art egg (Shiseido Gallery 2014). Recently, his pursuits have expanded into collaborative work with other artists as well as art book publication. Undertakings such as the publication of “The Copy Travellers” (Shunsuke Kano, Teppei Sako, Yaya Ueda) and the collaborative art installation Three Bodies, About 180 Trillion Cells (Yuta Hayakawa, Akira Takaishi, Shunsuke Kano) have allowed Kano to hold discussions and experiment with various artists and to push the boundaries on new means of expression.
This will be Kano’s fourth solo show at Maki Fine Arts following Baumkuchen and Flat Surfaces (2013), Fountain Mountain (2014), and Cool Breeze On The Rocks (2015). His upcoming show Construction Cross Section will feature new works including the “specious notion” series consisting of photos captured in Singapore as well as his video work. The artist’s continuous development can be seen through his most recent creations depicting Singapore’s transformation caused by urban development in places like construction sites.
