TAKASHI NAKAJIMA Solo Exhibition “scope”

Takashi Nakajima
1972 born in Tokyo, Japan
1994 Kuwasawa Design School, Tokyo. Master course in photography
He was influenced by the minimal art of Judd, Brancusi and Daniel Buren in terms of color and shape design, as well as by the Japanese art movement Mono-ha in terms of relational terms, relationships and materiality.

Nakajima has been creating spatial works using a plastic film called stretch wrap to visualize part of the infinite relationships between people – objects – matters – places, etc., and through the transmission of light, its refraction, reflection and the casted shadows, he brings overlooked events back to the viewer’s consciousness.

In addition to these installations, last year he created an outdoor work with more strength and distance by using a polypropylene based material called PP band.
This year, for the first time, we will be presenting a work using stainless steel as the material. Stainless steel is not a temporary material, but a semi-permanent one and the scenery captured on its surface obscures its shape. The anti-corrosive properties of the stainless steel allow its use outdoors, letting the imagination go wild into the distance.

The title “scope” means range or area and can also be translated as gun sights.
In the artists words, “the installations I have created and exhibited so far have a physical starting point and an end point and I visualize the events in between. The process of determining the starting and ending points is like aiming with a scope and it is also an act of determining the scope and area of the exhibition”.

This solo exhibition consists of two parts: the first is an outdoors installation of plastic bands on the exterior walls of the gallery and the second consist of a minimal indoors installation made by stainless steel objects. The visitors may experience the synchronicity and relationship of new values through this exhibition.

A new Nakajima’s attempt to use stainless steel. We invite you to experience the difference in scale between the large installation outside and the more minimalist exhibition inside the gallery.
