Event Report: ISHIDA Takashi’s Talk about His Works with HOSHINO Futoshi and Performance on June 16th



Our two spring exhibitions, ISHIDA Takashi “Light on the Arc” and TSUKAMOTO Etsuo “Sculpture Farm” finished on the 16th of June. Thank you for your visit.

On the final day of these exhibitions, ISHIDA and Mr. HOSHINO Futoshi (Aesthetics/Culture and Representation) as guest speaker held a talk about his works. In this talk, while reflecting from his early works (surprisingly, including his drawing in childhood) to the current creation during the residency in Aomori, they talked about some important elements and their transition of his works. Sometimes they referred to discussions in HOSHINO’s book, “Rhetoric of Sublime” (2017).

After the talk, the performance by ISHIDA was held in the gallery. We were fascinated by his improvisational movements with light and shadow.
