Momo Hoshitani exhibition “lit”
01-14 Fri. —
01-30 Sun. 02-06 Sun., 2022
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.

hin exhibition “Deep Paper”
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 Exhibition “On the repulsive force generated when skin touches skin”
11-05 Fri. ー 11-23 Tue., 2021
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.
“Cassette Tape”—NFT and the rise and fall of technology
“Cassette Tape” is the latest release by Park Taezoo in “To The Digital”.While the interface is a physical display in the gallery, the main concept of the work is NFT – data traded online in virtual currency. Through the description of this work, I would like to look back at the past, look at the … Continue reading
