Takuya Yokoyama was born in Kanagawa Prefecture in 1973. His works possess a rich impression of their materiality, while they confer an overwhelming sense of presence through the process of their molding within which traces of the artist’s hand may be felt.

Yokoyama is not concerned with a positioning within the category of Arts & Crafts, but instead with opening up the pliability of expression of his materials, and of his own capabilities as an artist. The ‘Pots’ of this exhibition bear magnificence to them, seeming as if taken from their concealment within the vastness of nature in their rounded form as they already were. With barely 2mm-small hole at its top, the work is at once a pot, but can also be grasped in the sense of an objet from the microscopic size of that hole.
