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.

Collage with colored paper on wall. Running until end of December in Ixelles/Brussels: rue Keyenveld, 49 (Be) just accross the street from Audrey Hepburn’s house.

Thanks Benjamine and Tom for making this happen. Thanks to Liz Carrington at Reclaim for hooking me up with a place where to work in Sheffield.

NEW BRIGANTIA – new exhibition in Sheffield.

I’m working on a new series of works for my future exhibition at A Month of Sundays Gallery which will open on June 15 in Sheffield UK (see flyer below). It’ll be mainly works on paper but this time I’m introducing colours and gold leaf! Here is a glimpse of the last piece I just finished.
