  • Interview with Tomoko Shioyasu - Bye Bye Kitty!!!
    forms The delicate white membranes she produces are concerned with reference rather than illusion space rather than image and with modulating flows of energy She began creating site specific works with the large installation acorn 2004 making interventions into the physical spaces of the gallery without providing an obvious framework thus allowing the piece to be viewed from both sides Whether concentrating on cells veins trees rocks or cosmic flows of energy Shioyasu has continued to develop a vocabulary of organic structure that refers back to primordial forms of nature Asked about what she regarded as content in her work Shioyasu replied Simply nature itself particularly that which has existed over an extended period of time rocks trees water channels cells I want to look into the essence and roots of life making works that focus on these basic forms Vortex has been created especially for Bye Bye Kitty You will need Adobe Flash Player to view the webcasts please click here to download Adobe Flash Player Calendar of Events February 2016 S M T W Th F S 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21

  • Interview with Haruka Kojin - Bye Bye Kitty!!!
    in Hiroshima in 1983 Haruka Kojin is one of the youngest artists featured in Bye Bye Kitty Over the past few years she has been part of exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo Museu de Arte Moderna in Sao Paulo the Soka Art Center in Taipei and the Singapore Art Museum In her series of works entitled reflectwo 2006 11 Kojin uses brightly colored plasticized fabric flowers to create a sense of disorientation by the use of mirror effects The installation you will see at Japan Society is based on an experience she had when walking by a river late at night The reflection of trees and bushes on the still surface of the water transmuted into the disconcerting disorienting image of a tower floating in the air The appearance of this floating organism gave me a strange sensation of gravity as though I was lost in space without any landmark The fear of the unknown made me feel sick It was a living thing totally paralyzed in the air Its form seemed to be alive in its perfection but its outline at that moment even in an incomplete state was strong enough to give me the false impression that it would continue to be like that forever It had a beauty which looked as though I could touch it Then suddenly I realized that everything was a dream You will need Adobe Flash Player to view the webcasts please click here to download Adobe Flash Player Calendar of Events February 2016 S M T W Th F S 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 Language Center Event Nihongo Chat Support Japan Society Become

    childhood but a serious illness prevented him from submitting his portfolio to the major Tokyo art schools in time Because he would have had to wait another year to resubmit he decided to study in London where he continues to work and live While finishing an MFA in sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Art he became fascinated with computer animation and started to make videos that were characterized by incongruities of scale and content At first he used his apartment as a set and his earliest work dwelling 2002 creates an initial impression of surprise and wonder as miniature airliners taxi along work tops eiderdowns and bathroom surfaces and loop around his domestic airspace But soon the charm of this airborne choreography starts to strike a more anxious note humor is accompanied by claustrophobia as more planes take off and proliferate in an air traffic controller s nightmare Resolution and relief comes when the planes seen in silhouette against a windowpane flies through the glass to join a real airliner in the distant sky Sawa once described his working method as follows Fundamentally my videos are all ambiguous fabrications As neither a documentary film maker nor a photographer I tend to be in limbo to start with and insert lies in each piece as I go along And when I say lies I don t mean throwing in dramatic falsehoods but finding ingenious ways to make things seem as real as possible You will need Adobe Flash Player to view the webcasts please click here to download Adobe Flash Player Calendar of Events February 2016 S M T W Th F S 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
