This event has ended.
Focusing on the “A Collector B” series, which shows photographs of sculptures made with found materials and sent through a scanner.
In the exhibition room, these objects are also displayed floating in the aquarium. Through this installation, the artist shows the audience “the present time”, in contrast to the photograph, a media which only shows a moment in the past. This is Bandai’s new approach to the materiality and definition of photographs.
New works from his representative series, “the Lid on the Hole” are also exhibited in this show. The artist started making this series from 2006 through 2008. It depicts sculptures made of illegally disposed garbage. Bandai resumed this series in 2015, shooting in highlands and low atmospheric pressure areas. This approach is based on a theory that sacred places are often located at heights where the atmospheric pressure is the same as the pressure in a womb. Bandai also presents the ongoing video series “Communication by 100 Pictures.” These new works are based on a survey of mother and children’s memories of birth.
