Summary

Sound, light and the flow of time sensed in randomly encountered scenes can summon up personal sensations and memories, the experience creating an intimate connection between ourselves, and what we see before us. This exhibition takes as its theme “interaction” in the sense of conversation or dialogue, and features three artists who encourage active engagement with their works by acting on the senses and memories of those who see those works.

AKAMATSU Nelo, ISOYA Hirofumi, and SASAKI Rui all take their cues from familiar phenomena. Superimposed on the installations here—such as Akamatsu’s Chijikinkutsu, which incorporates terrestrial magnetism; Isoya’s Flowers and Bees, Translucent Archive, which illuminates different types of time and memory around honey; and Sasaki’s “Liquid Sunshine” series, inspired by the frequently cloudy skies and rain of Toyama—are things the artists have sensed about their own individual connections to the world. As their souls touch our souls through these works, we in turn notice our connections with familiar things, and begin to see the world from new perspectives.
