|FOIL GALLERY is pleased to accnounce solo
exhibition "NAZE?" by Kyoto-based artist NAZE, from
3rd to 21st June, 2011.
Born in Ibaraki, 1989, NAZE has actively produced his work using
graffiti and rubbish as his motif or materials. This exhibition
will present NAZE's drawings on the rubbish which he collected
in NY or various places in Japan such as Kyoto and Tokyo.
Graffiti and rubbish is, as NAZE says, something people normally
regard as unwanted, and leave behind.
What distinguishes "art works" from "rubbish"
is, however, totally depending on the viewers' perspective, and
this distinction would largely influence the value.
As his name "NAZE" stands for "Why", this
artist has kept throwing doubts on such notion of the value and
attempting to overturn it.
During the exhibtition period, gallery will become NAZE's open
studio, there he will create works from rubbish gathered in Tokyo.
Art or rubbish, necessary or unnecessary - please visit us and
experience this question on the spot.
