This event has ended.
“Memorial Reconstruction” is an exhibition series thats serve as a visual metaphor of Tanaami’s own memories of experiencing the war as a child, as well as the mechanisms of his artistic practice. The exhibition introduces a variety of new works including three-dimensional works that resemble a miniature garden, as well as a selection of masterpiece collage works and mixed media paintings. At first glance, Tanaami’s recent works appear like uncanny yet pop renditions of Yokai-ga (traditional paintings of supernatural monsters, spirits, and demons in Japanese folklore). However, what is depicted are various memories that were reconstructed based on Tanaami’s actual experiences, at times using dreams as a medium. This special exhibition will be held concurrently at Nanzuka and Nanzuka 2G (2G, Shibuya Parco 2F).
