IKEDA Manabu: The Pen ーCondensed Universeー

2017.4.8 (Sat.) - 2017.7.9 (Sun.)

Artist IKEDA Manabu (1973–) depicts a monumental world using a super-fine pen point. Working slowly—he can complete only a fist-sized area in a single day— Ikeda manifests a surreal alien world, employing minute delineation and a flair for grand composition. His massive pictures have won him acclaim around the globe. This will be the first large-scale exhibition presenting the entire scope of Ikeda’s production. His Rebirth, a new work he spent three years creating during an artist residency at Chazen Museum of Art in Wisconsin USA, is a must see.

TAKEDA Yusuke

2017.1.21 (Sat.) - 2017.5.7 (Sun.)

TAKEDA Yusuke (born Hiroshima, 1985) majored in painting at Kanazawa College of Art and in 2014 earned his doctorate at the College’s graduate school. Takeda currently lives and works in Kanazawa, creating installations that combine varying media including painting, photography, video, and sound. Since October last year, he has undertaken production on a daily basis at this museum, using the Project Room as his studio, and this exhibition presents his latest works emerging from in-residency production. Creations employing such media as painting, video, drawing, and statues are installed as independent works in the gallery space, yet meanwhile, they take “image depth / image humidity” as a basso continuo and appear before us as things indefinite or else unclear, overlapping at their deep layers, segmenting, shifting, and changing content. Such works and their correlation evoke coordinate axes containing images of “visible and invisible” and “reality and fiction,” and jolt our perceptions.
