Solo Exhibitions by: 
Tomoko Kawai
Kawai creates photographic works that focuses on the “uncertainty/fuzziness“ lying within culture, society and history, through fieldwork and research in a variety of different fields. Photographic images are fuzzy, neither representing a reality nor guaranteeing anything. Photos are included in her works positioned as “barely fixed objects.” As all are surrounded by the uncertainty of being “like something/as if,”...

In his exhibition ALL FOR ONE, Futo Akiyoshi focuses on the tools for painting. For his series „something too much“ the artist uses as many tools as possible in one painting. By contrast, only a single color is selected for each work. The harmony of the image is composed not only by colors and shapes but also by various textures. These diversity, limitation and harmony constitute the rule of this series, and the rule itself is the aim of these paintings....

Deep acting, © Emelie Carlén, 2017
Deep acting. When the absence of pleasure arise, a drive awakens. Desires are drawn towards what could potentially ease the void. Emotions will unforgivingly link it back to ones body, battling internal feelings. You are performing as expected - As the laboring self. You will need a genuine inner display, becoming the thing you crave. The identification lies in the gap, which loops around the anxiety for the self.

A particular tension is characteristic of Zakarauskas´s work: although his painting is representational and figurative, what exactly is being portrayed is not concrete or clearly defined. The majority of Zakarauskas´s paintings usually feature self-portraits of the artist with his characteristic posture and even clothing style. Yet the figures are faceless, including even the artist´s muse. 
The earlier paintings of Zakarauskas had a fantasy flavour, as...

It all started with the gramophone. Then the shellac records came, one after another. And then the books - the knowledge and the wish to know even more. It is about beginnings - with the gramophone Enrico Caruso found his way into the living rooms of the world. He became the most famous tenor of the first half of the 20th century.
It is about an idea. And about exploring a story. Diving into bygone times. How did people rate Caruso back in those days, how...
