About the Exhibition

In the same painting, Nishimura Yu (1982-) complexly overlays different scenes or actions catching his eye—fragments of “fulfilling hours enjoyed in daily life”—and composes them in a landscape. The resulting blurry picture evokes a place seemingly far removed from reality and pulls the viewer into the depicted scene.


A series introducing rising young artists in a solo exhibition format. Artists and curators together formulate an occasion for the exhibition, thereby opening the door to new endeavor in the future. Highly-anticipated artists are selected without regard for their nationality or production methods.


Organized by:
