Asami Shoji “To the Hundred-Eyed Bird”
Ends in 9 days
*void + will reopen from June 1 (Tue.).
The third artist featured in this series, Asami Shoji is a rapidly rising star of the Japanese art world whose work has earned her a Grand Prix at the FACE 2019 exhibition, and an emerging artist prize at the Gotoh Memorial Cultural Awards in 2020. Shoji studied copperplate engraving at Tama Art University before going on to paint oils of mythical themes and ambiences on semi-transparent acrylic sheets. At this exhibition, visitors will view her paintings in a space resembling a cave, using only their own hand-held forms of light. Other offerings will include a video work produced in collaboration with video artist Shu Nakagawa, and drawings. This is an artist who encourages us to view and contemplate art with the whole of our bodies. Visitors are urged to approach the painterly space created by Shoji not just a visual, but a truly corporeal experience.
(*The artist also plans to paint live on-site every Saturday during the exhibition)
During the exhibition Tama Art University professor Yuri Mitsuda will also be invited to give a talk on Shoji’s work. Details to be posted on the void+ website.
from June 01, 2021 to June 22, 2021
