This event has ended.
This year’s 13th shiseido art egg exhibition received 269 applications from across Japan. Among the many creative proposals to take advantage of Shiseido Gallery’s distinctive exhibition space, artists Fumi Imamura, Kiyono Kobayashi, and Kaori Endo were selected for their unique perspectives and expressions of new values and aesthetics in today’s world. Solo exhibitions of these three selected artists will be held at the Shiseido Gallery in succession from Friday, July 5 to Sunday, September 22, 2019.
Kobayashi is interested in words written or spoken by human beings, and presents artworks that question the relationships between individuals and society. Based on letters written by women who had just graduated from girls’ school during the war in 1945, she constructs a sound installation that combines the voices of multiple people who read the letters aloud. The effects of speech recall the lives of people from the past.
