This event has ended.
Nanzuka is pleased to present “Lonsdaleite Year,” an exhibition of new works by Masato Mori. The exhibition marks the artist’s first solo presentation with the gallery in five years since his previous show in 2016, and will be held in the newly opened flagship gallery Nanzuka Underground, located in Tokyo’s Harajuku District.
“Lonsdaleite Year” is a series that can be regarded as a picture diary describing Mori’s daily life in Tokushima. Mori generates the energy for his artistic practice by raising his interests and intrigue to a level of “passionate enthusiasm.” The daily life of the artist, which essentially is an extension of his various acts of play such as collecting insects, playing in the river, raising animals and plants, enjoying games and cartoons, eventually come to be collected as sources of inspiration for his work. For this exhibition, Mori plans to present 12 large-scale canvas paintings and 4 bronze pieces, all of which are new works that have been created as a result of a preparatory period of over a year.
