Panta Rhei – For as long as the world turns
Venue [ Main Building（South Wing）2F ]
We are pleased to announce Panta Rhei – For as long as the world turns, the first museum exhibition of Yukimasa Ida in Japan. The exhibition will travel, it will begin at the Yonago City Museum of Art (the artists hometown) from July 22, 2023, and move to the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art, from September 30, 2023.
Ida’s main concept of “ICHI-GO ICHI-E”, which means “a once in a lifetime moment” has been the primary focus of his practice. In this ever-changing world, things, events, and people disperse, yet are unknowingly connected, shaping the world today. People exist in the past and present, each having their own story. Ida’s works are about gathering miraculous encounters of individuals and crystallizing them onto canvas based on the reality he captures.
The exhibition will feature his past painting and sculpture, including never seen works in Japan. The show will also present his “End of today” series, in which he uses as a picture diary, and his latest works. The exhibited works represent the trajectory of Ida’s life.
Visitors will be able to feel the two contradictories in Ida’s works “ever-changing things”, and “things never change”, as it expands from dots to lines, and from lines to planes, flowing from the past to the future. We hope that this exhibition will provide you with an opportunity to appreciate Ida’s powerful art, which is too, a once in a lifetime moment that can only be encountered at this time and place.
