Recently renewed and super white, Rat Hole Gallery is a very small one in Aoyama, in the heart of Omotesando fashion district.

The front desk of the gallery. It is the main change to the gallery, together with the sadly lost bookshelves filled with amazing art books and rare publications. We hope they will come back soon.

Paintings in the place where the book store used to be....

The sculpture in the main gallery room. This work has been presented at the Venice Biennale, 2007.

A detail of the sculpture...

The mirror on the side of the sculpture makes things look pixelated.

Maurizio Mucciola

Maurizio Mucciola. Born in Italy in 1977, studied architecture in Milan (and Lisbon for a year). After working in different architecture and landscape design firms he decided to go back to school and spent a year and a half at the architecture school of Columbia University in New York, while at the same time collaborating and shooting photos for "Volume Magazine". Then one year in Rotterdam at the Rem Koolhaas's Office for Metropolitan Architecture before he finally landed in Tokyo in January 2009 to work at Kengo Kuma & Associates Architects. Architecture really absorbs most of its time, but sometimes he likes to take in the city and go around art galleries and museums, and try to catch Tokyo through a Nikon camera. » See other writings
