Yuta Akiyama + Catalyst Kishibe “Super Circulation”
This event has ended.
This installation on the theme of “circulation” incorporates materials from the construction of Eukaryote gallery on the first through third floors and roof of a building in Jinguimae. Yuta Akiyama, who has worked in construction for 20 years, reflects on the overlap between art and construction in a space located near the in-progress New National Stadium. Akiyama sees them both construction and art as key in experiencing meaning in his life. “I think the moment a monumental work of construction is completed is like reaching orgasm,” he says. “It’s the most exciting part of the work.” Catalyst Kishibe is an artist whose activities include running an experimental shop that bulk sells video materials and organizing board games using art objects made from media players. Don’t miss the experiments of these two cutting-edge artists central to the alternative art scene.
