To celebrate our 3rd year anniversary, Kanazawa Art Gummi is presenting a solo exhibitionof video works by Hiraki Sawa.
Based in London, but working all over the world, this willbe Sawa’s first exhibition in his hometown, Kanazawa. He’s well known for video worksthat have many fragmentary images blended together. You can see casual objects likesmall toy airplanes, gear wheels, goats, and Ferris wheels, at common places suchas a simple apartment or street.
In this exhibition, three works will be shown, includinghis first video work “dwelling”, as well as very recent creations, and an overview of hisworks. These works, which shuffle and reconstruct daily things, are matched well with thegallery designed by Murano Togo, and the fine balance will be a gateway to a unique andfertile “daily life”.
