Something made differentとは今あるものを別のものにするという意味があります。

日本の豊かな文化遺産と共存するユニークな社会、先駆的なテクノロジー、それらが混じり合った環境は多様なレスポンスを生み出します。
本展ではそんな多様性のある『日本』を4人の海外アーティスト達が独自の視点で捉えた作品を展示します。彼らが「春の訪れと共に新しい形を追求しましょう」とアートをを通じて呼びかけている作品は今ある日常を別の角度から切り取っています。

Each artist will be exhibiting their individual response to Japan, a country of great contrasts. The juxtaposition of its rich cultural heritage sitting alongside unique social and pioneering technological environments lends itself to diverse responses……… Spring is here and it is time for something made different.

Un dessin est beau si la ligne est vivante – Exhibition Niort (Fr)

Here is one of the ink drawings I sent to the following exhibition in the beautiful city of Niort France. Winterlong gallery, which has been working with many excellent international artists for a number of years, has curated this really cool line up including this time the work of about 70 artists displayed at the Pilori Museum. I had the pleasure to work with Winterlong Gallery 4 years ago for an installation I did at the museum in collaboration with artist Kid Acne. The title ‘Un dessin est beau si la ligne est vivante’ is a quote by Jean Cocteau and refers to the theme of the exhibition: all works are drawings on paper.
