Ends in 2 days
Satoru Aoyama is a contemporary artist who creates elaborate embroidered works using old industrial sewing machines, and has gained the support of many contemporary art fans in Japan and abroad. His works are full of humor, and in this exhibition, he expresses a critical spirit toward the division of values that has become more prominent since COVID-19.
The Everyday Art Market is an activity that Aoyama started immediately after the declaration of the state of emergency in April 2020. With the motto of reacting sensitively to the changes in the world of the pandemic and continuing to create in an “everyday” manner even in the midst of “extraordinary” days.
This exhibition is an extension of the ‘Re Construction’ exhibition held in July 2020 at the Nerima Art Museum, which captured the world from a humorous perspective and became a hot topic, and the ‘Domani/Tomorrow Plus Online 2020’ exhibition held in January 2021 at the National Art Center, Tokyo, organized by the Agency for Cultural Affairs.
