谷口和正 TANIGUCHI Kazumasa




Words that are transformed and float

Using irons, a material with a heavy mass and hard texture, the artist gives shape to "words" extracted from music lyrics and other sources that he admires.
Due to the lighting, the shadows that emerge in the space, which gives the "words" a different mass and transforms the space itself into sculptural works.
In contrast to his large scale outdoor exhibitions, he has challenged the Japanese style of "shade" in his works such as the mosquito repellent and lanterns in the projects from PAKUPAKUAN. We will introduce his old and new works, that is full of new possibilities for expression.
