eitoeiko is pleased to announce a solo exhibition titled UFO by Okamoto Mitsuhiro. The exhibition runs from October 5 to November 3. Okamoto's first UFO object appeared in front of the entrance of Aomori Museum of Art, in summer of 2005. The round-shaped oversize object was titled Unidentified Falling Object. The news about the fallen saucer received on TV and internet, and the number of visitors of the exhibition‘Bakemono’ in the museum was much larger than expected. The same artwork won the second prize of Rokko Meets Art in 2006 and also showed at Tomakomai City Museum, Hokkaido. The other unidentified artwork were developed by the artist, such as Unidentified Five-rounds-per-minute Object. and Unidentified Family Object. And in 2018, Unidentified Freespinning Object came in Fukuoka. Okamoto attempts to visualize invisible factors by his humorous objects, as well as the artist suggests to doubt what we have already got to know. Okamoto is an artist who makes art as a mirror which reflects a society, by using various media with wordplay, traditional design and the representation of the contemporary culture. The mirror is contorted by the artist and it represents a distortion of society. At the exhibition, Okamoto will show it and the other unidentified objects. Viewer will be a witness of the first contact.
