Yuta Akiyama + Rintaro Fuse “Model Room”
This event has ended.
This exhibition is arranged by two artists: Yuta Akiyama, who has worked as a craft person in architecture, design, construction and carpentry, and Rintaro Fuse, who takes critical approaches to “art history as a human history and the society formed by iPhone.” Born in 1981, Akiyama has engaged in interior finishing work for more than 20 years and creates experiments in which he connects contemporary art and architecture with spaces designed for his exhibitions. Fuse (b. 1994) builds installations that visualize contemporality with his own unique viewpoint. At the exhibition “iphone mural (a cave paintings by iPhone)” in 2016, he drew attention with his comparison of the “new natural environment” which emerged after we started using our smartphones vs. ancient people’s attitudes toward nature. While maintaining their original perspectives, this time Akiyama and Fuse collaborate in the gallery space to create a “Model Room” together.
