Exhibition Announcement - TAIPEI DANGDAI 2022

May 17, 2022

KOTARO NUKAGA is pleased to present our exhibition at an international art fair TAIPEI DANGDAI 2022, which will be held from May 20 (Fri) at the Taipei World Trade Center. At this art fair, KOTARO NUKAGA will be exhibiting 19 of two-dimensional and three-dimensional works by 6 artists, including Stefan Brüggemann, Yuichi Hirako and Mariko Kobayashi.

Yuichi Hirako, whose solo exhibition will be held at KOTARO NUKAGA, Roppongi, at the same time, will exhibit wood sculptures with dioramic motifs arranged around a towering tree. The simplified scene presents Hirako’s worldview more clearly. Stefan Brüggemann, who quotes texts that flood around the world and exposes contemporary social structures, will exhibit his masterpiece ‘Headlines & Last Line in The Movies,’ which depicts TV and newspaper news headlines on mirrored panels, as well as texts from classic films. Mariko Kobayashi, who gives life to materials by combining various textile techniques, vividly expresses the recursion of the natural world by depicting birds and trees flapping their wings to the sky. Kazuhito Kawai, who says that the medium of ceramics has liberated his creativity, expresses his inner self in a multilayered manner through irregular and intricately piled clay forms and bold colors. We also have Tomona Matsukawa, who paints striking and realistic images and uses words from the interviews with women of the same generation for her titles. Kisho Mwkaiyama, who creates minimalist paintings using color itself as a material, will be exhibiting for the first time at KOTARO NUKAGA.

We hope you will take this opportunity to visit the exhibition. We look forward to seeing you at the exhibition.
