Obsession Conception Possession
Since the notion that ideas and concepts taking the main role in artworks were introduced as conceptual art, a genre of arts in the 1960s, it has been more than half century. This movement was started in the United States and Europe but when it was claimed as conceptual art in the contemporary world, the movement has become more and more diversified with complicated background of history and culture of every country.
In this exhibition, three artists with more than 20 years of careers, Kazz Sasaguchi, Toshihiko Furuya and Masato Wakabayashi are showing their works together. They all have been pursuing their thought which cannot be described all in words and making the trace into works of art from different perspective. This is a good opportunity to see the solid conceptual art in Japan today.
Through these works from art field, you can experience the new viewpoint opening up to the world of physics, philosophy, linguistics and beyond. Discover the rare moment that the works of artists who take time for production and rarely appear in public are coming all together in one place.
