Taku Hisamura “One-point Sculptures”
This event has ended.
Born in Tokyo in 1977, Taku Hisamura creates work using techniques and materials on the periphery of art, from handmade to DIY crafts. Most of his work is made from everyday items such as clothes and furniture, but they are not readymade, which eliminates their functions, but rather they are made without taking away their original functions. In “Plus Series,” one of Hisamura’s representative works, he sews a pedestal and exhibition space around a “one-point” logo sewn on clothes, making the logo look like a work of art. In the “Balance Series,” in which he sculpted the legs of a chair to make it unstable, but also to make it just barely work as a piece of furniture, he focused on a single point under the feet, which is essential for the object to stand on its own. These reflect the motivation of handmade products to transform products that are reproduced for mass production into “one-point” products. Hisamura’s work is light-heartedly connected by the keyword “one-point,” which is Japanese English, and will give viewers a little insight by shifting their usual perspective of looking at things.
In this exhibition, visitors can enjoy Hisamura’s works both in the gallery space and in the guest room where they can listen to an audio guide only for guests. (To view the exhibition in the guest room, reservations are required through the Kaika Tokyo website.
