Minato Mari: Horizons
Venue [ The Triangle ]
Beginning with meticulous research, Minato Mari visualizes changes in light and the flow of time as paintings and installations. Since relocating to France in 2006, she has based herself in Paris and captured the various cultural differences between her adoptive and home countries in her sketchbooks. Through these diverse observations of culture, she explores the act of depicting something, which humankind has done since ancient times, and the universality of the images created out of that act.
This exhibition features artworks inspired by the watercourse that once existed at the site where The Triangle now stands, based on archaeological resources about the land. By superimposing the actual flow of water onto the continuously changing environment and history that has accumulated over time, Minato reveals how we live today in the midst of this process.
About “The Triangle”
“The Triangle” is a space that is newly created on the occasion of the renewal opening of the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art. Our aim is for it to become a venue to nurture emerging artists, centered on artists associated with Kyoto, and to provide an opportunity for museum visitors to experience contemporary art. In order to connect the “artist, museum and viewer” in a triangle and deepen their connection, we will use this space to host a series of special exhibitions bearing the name “The Triangle” as we set out to present new artistic creations from Kyoto.
