LAYER DRAWINGS | SOLO | NOBUHIRO NAKANISHI 中西信洋 We are very proud and overly excited to start this new cultural season with the work of Nobuhiro Nakanishi! A specially curated solo show with six distinctive works, amongst them one big center piece of seven meters. You are invited to celebrate the first show of Nakanishi in The Netherlands starting from 17:00 - 19:00 at QLICK Gallery The work of Nakanishi (1976, JP) portrays changes that take place in everyday life, like the sun rising or ice cream melting. These ordinary events were photographed at regular intervals, printed on transparent film and assembled in sequence. He captures the accumulation of time and space and transform this into sculptural photography which allows the viewer to experience the ephemerality of time. Walking around his work gives you a new insight and experience of the portrayed event. “Different from a painting, it is not cut into a frame. It is neither edited like video images. I can incorporate elements of both time and space as one into this work of creation. In short, it is probably an act of closest to the act of looking at an object in our daily life.” – Nobuhiro Nakanishi The work of Nakanishi is included in several private and museum collections such as Mori Art Museum Tokyo and The Museum of Modern Art Wakayama. This exhibition is on show from Sept. 8 - Oct. 20

He photographs these ordinary events at regular intervals, prints them on transparent film and assembled the images in sequence. By doing so he captures the accumulation of time and space and transforms it into sculptural photography which allows the viewer to experience the ephemerality of time. Walking around his work gives you an insight and experience of the portrayed event. All of Nakanishi’s work is about observing and understanding an object and giving it a new abstract, material body. The artistic process is a sculpting experience that is closely connected to the perception of our surroundings. The sculpture is defined by the thought, awareness, viewing and perceiving from a certain context. It is not about simply looking at something but maximizing the use of our nerves, memory and sense of touch to their fullest, about using our entire body as an organ to perceive. Matter remains as evidence of the intermediary action between the artist and the viewer, the sculpture becomes only a physical memory, but one that allows you and triggers you to relive an intangible moment again. From both the artist and viewer’s perspective, the act of looking is also about searching for a place into which we can transpose ourselves. The work of Nakanishi is included in several private and museum collections such as Mori Art Museum Tokyo and The Museum of Modern Art Wakayama.
