This event has ended.
Rintaro Fuse, born in 1994, is an artist who uses a wide range of media, including painting, video, iPhone, and printing, and is also active in other fields such as exhibition planning and criticism. He has garnered attention for his exhibition ‘iPhone Mural’ (2016), which contrasted the “confused reality” constructed after the advent of smartphones with the way people who painted cave murals tens of thousands of years ago dealt with nature. In the midst of COVID-19, the exhibition ‘Isolated Close Contact Room’ (2020) was held with web pages that can only be accessed by one person at a time. Fuse’s work has been highly acclaimed for its ability to sense the problems and discomforts that are not visualized but certainly exist, such as the distance between people and society and the nature of communication, and to skillfully manifest them through collaboration with artists, poets, musicians, and designers of his generation.
In this solo exhibition, Fuse will present a new video work focusing on “names,” as well as several spray paintings.
