*Closed on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Tuesday, 10-11

PAGIC Gallery is pleased to announce hin’s second solo exhibition at the gallery.
HIN tries to bring humanism into balance by harmonizing with nature in this show.
In other words, it is returning to our original place by remembering ourselves as belonging to nature.
Her works have various meanings: intention and contingency, consciousness and unconsciousness, jokes and truth, and balance of mind, head, and body.
From one perspective, the blooming flowers in the paintings symbolize life; wish to dedicate them while the people you love are still around.

One day I was on the train, coming up with a phrase, “I wanna collect many jewels in my mind.” And I was happy with it.That was the moment of getting healed by my word flowing out from myself

From a physics perspective, there is always a force of repulsion when different objects come into contact with each other.
The fabrics used in Shin’s work are collected through various routes and represent something between the artist himself and others.
Contemplating contemporary art is something that Shin cannot separate from himself, and he expresses this by daring to combine his work with staging that evokes a water feature at the center of the living environment.

This exhibition is a continuation of the solo exhibition of the same title held last year, which evolved from “Emotional Nostalgia for Broken Things.
By tuning in to the “cuteness” of Shin’s works, such as their human imperfection and their experientially “small” size, the ideal is to make the viewer feel no distance between them and the art as much as they come into contact with it.

Shinozaki’s artwork is made up of an accumulation of detailed drawings on paper and wood.
Shinozaki depicts them as he receives inspiration that fit his specific frequency, such as fragments of information or geometric shapes. From a proximal perspective, Shinozaki is an observer of the micro-imagination.
His work becomes a space by arranging it like a puzzle, creating a universe on the screen. From an overlooked perspective, Shinozaki is also a creator of multiple time spaces.

Artist in gallery on July 30th, 31st, Augast 5th, 7th

Hanako Kimura exhibition “@Same_Not_Same”

04-08 Fri. —04-26 Tue., 2022

Through her works, contemporary artist Hanako Kimura shows how seemingly opposing concepts can be mixed and matched as inseparable things, and that there is a vast gray zone lying in between.

In @Same_Not_Same, we will exhibit the project of the same name, which includes photography, sculptures, and an Instagram account.

This project focuses on a product called LILLEPLUTT – a cat-shaped soft – sold by IKEA, a gigantic company with 445 stores in 59 countries around the world.

This adorable toy is mass-produced and sold as the same product all over the world. However, due to differences in the manufacturing process, no two are identical in appearance, and the price varies depending on the country or region where they are sold, giving them a different meaning to their owners.

Working in various Asian countries in 2019, Kimura attempts to engage with “individuals” in each country through this product and to explore the reality of this world of which they, and we, are a part.

Through the experience of Markinton, who symbolizes the “who left behind,” the story depicts encounter and loss, traumatizing and acceptance.
Also, there will be a series of independent stories such as “FRIENDS” and “UFO-chan” that share the same world, and each character represents the artist’s inherent emotions, difficulties, and delicacy.
In this exhibition, SUZAKI’s drawing works, which are her flesh and blood but have never been sold before, will be available for purchase as printings and blockchain certificates.
In addition to the canvas works, original goods from Markington, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2022, will be available.

  • Closed on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Tuesday, March 8
  • Artist in gallery on February 25 to 27
  • Open at 4 pm at the opening day

Momo Hoshitani exhibition “lit”

PAGIC Gallery is pleased to announce “lit” Momo Hoshitani’s solo exhibition. 
Hoshitani’s paintings are based on the theme of “living is feeling.”

The title of this exhibition, “lit,” used to have the meaning of “drunk” as well as “great” and “fun” in these days in slang. As it suggests, Hoshitani takes a positive view of the way people live and weave their lives, and she has created this exhibition with the aim of making people feel a lot of “fun.

Hoshitani, who was raised in a family where her parents were two different types of painters, has highly polished her miniature drawing skills, but she is not limited to that.

The lines and colors of her oil pastels and acrylic paints are sensitive and optimistic, yet they harmonize with the gracefully widened margins to show how cheerful our lives are.

Next, I am drawn to the pencil miniatures that capture the wrinkles, moles, and even frowns of people’s expressions. Hoshitani celebrates and affirms that unfiltered humanity is humanity, with both beauty and flaws.

Preferring natural texture, Hoshitani often uses paper as a support, sometimes cutting it out or stretching it together to create depth and rhythm. The world created in these works is even musical.

We hope you will enjoy Mono Hoshitani’s first solo exhibition in Tokyo and her new works.

*Extended exhibition period
*Closed on Wednesday and Thursday
*The artist will be in the gallery on Sunday, January 30.

12-03 Fri. ー 12-21 Tue., 2021

hin is a painter who uses an original technique called “virtual spray,” in which she hand-paints shapes that resembles spray drops, like pixels.
In her paintings, she attempts to apply the “abstraction of information” that occurs in the conversion from analog to digital to dealing with the excessive amount of information in digital society itself.
In this exhibition, hin presents the ambiguity and fascination of the boundary between the three-dimensional world and the contemporary world, where the flat Internet screen has become a window to reality.
In addition, hin has updated her expression to lead to emotional and conceptual processing and understanding through her work. The stylized methods of sprays and dots, and the landscapes depicted as safe zones protected from the outside world, are clearly intended to function as therapy.

Masaharu Shin is interested in how contemporary art explores human rules of experience and symbols, and how it breaks these preconceptions through expression.
In this exhibition, Shin highlights emotions that are paradoxically accentuated by incorporating a structure of nostalgia for something that has been broken.
This is a bold and nuanced first solo exhibition in Tokyo by the young and upcoming artist who completed his graduate studies at Kyoto University of Arts in 2021.

Taezoo Park exhibition “To The Digital”

10-15 Fri.ー10-31 Sun., 2021

PAGIC Gallery is pleased to present “To The Digital,” the first solo exhibition in Tokyo by New York-based artist Taezoo Park.
With digital technology, Park attempts to visualize what we made, what we missed, what we abandoned, and where we are heading to.
Calling his work “Digital Being,” he has been presenting mechanical creatures that exist as matter, giving energy-consuming, sensor-responsive dynamics to technology that repeatedly develops and decays as it evolves. As a contemporary artist who incorporates technology, he has been acclaimed in the New York art scene, including a long-term exhibition at the World Trade Center.
In this exhibition, you will be able to intuitively communicate with Digital Beings, who are rich in individuality, from the early works to the new works, and enjoy an experience that goes beyond viewing.
