This event has ended.
Satoshi Hirose (1963- ) lives and works in Milan and Tokyo. Actively producing works since the 1990s when he commenced his artistic practice, he has participated in numerous exhibitions internationally, including those in museums and galleries across Japan, Asia, and Italy. In recent years he has also been involved in long-term projects that extend beyond existing art activities and consider interactions with society, such as his Sky Project (initiated in Maebashi in 2016 and anticipated to continue until 2035), in which he exchanges photographs of the sky with mothers and children of a single mother’s living support facility.
In the exhibition presented in the gallery, individual works from those using gold and gold leaf, to sculptures of pillars, installations featuring real beans and wooden beans as well as curtains and plants, drawings on tracing paper, and ambiguous looking paintings– all appearing seemingly heterogeneous, are made to coexist in the exhibition space so as to loosely connect with one other.
The exhibition title “Strange Loop” envisions a paradoxical world in which beginning and end are connected, and reflects an unspecific, elusive outlook that is neither defined as truth or fallacy.
