Ends in 17 days

Ryosuke Higo is an artist whose work questions and examines conventions and common sense. His work has focused on the gestures, behavior, and speech patterns we make unconsciously in everyday life. Based on a phantom island mistakenly shown on Google Maps, the exhibition considers the fictions, and their propagation, that society and individuals both intentionally and unintentionally create, featuring works that attempt to pass this on in new forms.

*Criterium comes from the Latin “criterion,” which means a standard. Every exhibition is formed jointly by the artist and the curator.
