This event has ended.
*In response to the declaration of the state of emergency, Tokyo International Gallery will be postponing the opening of the exhibition「Endless.-The Changing Landscape, In the Repeating Consciousness-,originally scheduled to open on January 19th.
The work of Yuki Yamamoto, in which circles are arranged in stacked transparent layers and combined in an optical illusion, is a true work of art. Yamamoto combines these “circles” in an illusionary manner, that seem to have the potential to go on forever, like pi, intersecting with the viewer’s consciousness. By intersecting and interfering with the viewer’s consciousness, the work expands the relationship between the two.
Ai Makita’s works, in which physical brushstrokes are superimposed on a set of digital data collected from the environment, are a fusion of the canvas and the real world. Her work is an organic image created by the fusion of the canvas and the real world. It grows in the viewer’s mind, like a tree becoming a forest.
The works of Reiko Kinoshita, who weaves intentional actions into irreversible phenomena generated by overlapping coincidences The work of Reiko Kinoshita, which weaves intentional actions into irreversible phenomena generated by coincidental overlapping, drops the artist’s consciousness while framing a moment of time that already exists. Like light shining on the earth, she continues to make the “buds” of consciousness sprout in the viewer.
The gathered consciousness, thoughts, and feelings of Yuki Yamamoto, Ai Makita, and Reiko Kinoshita, act much like the “Big Bang” that created our universe By gathering the consciousness, thoughts, and feelings of Yuki Yamamoto, Ai Makita, and Reiko Kinoshita, an invisible power is unleashed in the consciousness of the viewer. I believe that this is our boundary. Continuing to search for these boundaries may also be a never-ending pursuit of beauty. I hope that each of you will be able to feel the “beauty” that you dream.
