8/ART GALLERY/ Tomio Koyama Gallery (Shibuya Hikarie) is pleased to present “Kishio Suga - Photographs and Videos” introducing photographs and video works as well as documentary footage of the “activation (series)." Also, the film "Being and Murder "(1988-99) directed and written by Suga on the occasion of his solo exhibition at Yokohama Museum of Art will be screened on May 31, from 6:30 pm at 8/ COURT (Shibuya Hikarie). The talk event by Taro Amano (Curator in Chief/ Program Director of Yokohama Civic Art Gallery Azamino) who produced the film is given after the show.
In addition, the exhibition “Kishio Suga Expanded Self-Space"(May 25 - June 30, 2018) will be held concurrently at Tomio Koyama Gallery (Roppongi) featuring a selection of approximately 20 latest works by the artist. Furthermore, his metal sculpture is presented in the solo exhibition "Released Existence on Edges” (May 12 - July 4, 2018) at “THE CLUB” art gallery in GINZA SIX (Ginza).
Suga enables “things” and “things,” “things” and “space,” and “things” and “people” to connect, enclose and be interdependent on each other in different ways from how we usually perceive things to be in existence, thereby giving the impression of things as presenting new forms and even situations. Suga attempts to reveal the fundamental conditions and manner in which our world exists through a multifaceted approach that appropriates various means from three-dimensional works to two-dimensional works, photographs, and video to express that which we are “unable to see.” These series of exhibitions will serve as an invaluable opportunity to comprehensively encounter and experience the world of Suga’s work.
