This exhibition will display some 100 photographic works and 3 video pieces with a focus on Risaku Suzuki’s new and previously unseen works. His works taken by a large-sized camera using 8×10 inches film invites viewers to enjoy the pure act of seeing. By confronting the photograph before us without preconceptions, conscious of all it depicts, we will re-experience the world “seen” by Suzuki and know the fresh delight of seeing.

Genichiro Inokuma
Cats Upcoming

Date: 13 June 2015 - 23 September 2015 / Open Everyday
Hours: 10:00 - 18:00 (Admission until 30 minutes before closing time)
Cats were a motif Genichiro Inokuma (1902-93) felt a particular fondness for. Both he and his wife liked cats, and at one time, they kept a dozen cats in their house. Living with cats around him every day, Inokuma naturally came to view them with an artist’s eye. This exhibition will look at Inokuma’s cat pictures from varying perspectives, such as style, technique, and how he combines cats with other motifs.

Martino Gamper 
100 Chairs in 100 Days Upcoming

Date: 13 June 2015 - 23 September 2015
Hours: 10:00-18:00 (Admission until 30 minutes prior to closing time.)
*Open until 20:00 on 13 June
Martino Gamper (born 1971 in Italy, resides in London), known for his crossovers between fine art and design, came to major acclaim with 100 Chairs in 100 Days (2007), for which he culled disused chairs from London alleyways and friends' homes and reassembled them one per day into poetic, often humorous forms. Drawing upon the history of furniture yet altogether unique and original improvisations, he has toured 99 chairs around the globe, always creating another 100th chair in each new location. So for this exhibition, he will create a yet-unveiled 100th chair from a find here in Marugame. Working within self-imposed parametres — found materials, structures, designs and a single day — Gamper's 100 chairs showcase his wit and experiments in transforming limitations into elements of possibility. Transcending mere design and function, Gamper's unprecedented methodology lets us glimpse the stories hidden within things.
