Kazumasa Noguchi: Small Impact

Starting this weekend at the Nakaochiai Gallery:

Nakaochiai Gallery is pleased to announce Small Impact, a new exhibition by Tokyo-based architect and visual artist Kazumasa Noguchi.

Noguchi has spent one month at the gallery creating a site-specific installation. The artist’s aim is to create a relationship between objects that are not related in any way. “Welcome to the world of simple rules that make things complex,” he says.

Two-dimensional geometrical painted forms will create a fragmented puzzle lining line the floor, walls and ceiling of the gallery’s first floor. The Japanese-style room on the second floor will host his latest series of line drawings on paper, following the same principle. Both series of works create a sequence of images in which each induces or influences the next – a “chain reaction.”

An opening reception with live performance by Yuki Ono happens on October 2 (18:00-21:00), with the show running October 3-23.
