Chikaku. Time and Memory in Japan
Hiroshi Sugimoto, Sea of Buddha (detail), 1995.


GRAZ, AUSTRIA.- Kunsthaus Graz presents Chikaku. Time and Memory in Japan. A comprehensive exhibition by Kunsthaus Graz and Camera Austria entitled “Chikaku. Time and Memory in Japan”, reflecting the dynamic development of Japanese art during recent decades.

The exhibition focuses on the topics of “perception” (Japanese “Chikaku”), “time” and “memory”. Concentrating on these topics and in collaboration with Adam Budak and Seiichi Furuya, the art scientist Toshiharu Ito defines afresh what are for Japanese art some highly characteristic positions, albeit scarcely presented together until now.

The spatial concept that was developed especially for Kunsthaus Graz offers altogether appropriate circumstances for pursuing the manifold and winding paths of contemporary artistic expression. Makoto Sei Watanabe, one of the most important contemporary Japanese architects, is responsible for the exhibition design.

The exhibition includes contemporary art, photography, video/film, media art and architecture. It casts new light on the complex shades and dimensions of Japanese art, visualises connections between works from various epochs and genres, creating new relations. Last but not least, this multi-layered approach sketches out links and interdependencies that had scarcely been traced until now.
