Kazuki UMEZAWA Solo Exhibition “Black Omen”
[1st Term] Sat. 25 July – Sun. 16 August
[2nd Term] Thu. 27 August – Sun. 20 September
Artist: Kazuki UMEZAWA
CASHI is pleased to announce Kazuki Umezawa’s solo exhibition Black Omen at the gallery. Umezawa has created a unique pictorial surface using his bricolage-like method, collecting and reconstructing images diffused on the Internet.
This show is Umezawa’s first solo exhibition at CASHI in seven years since 2013’s Kazuki UMEZAWA Retrospective. During this time, he has evolved further, participating in group exhibitions at major museums in Japan and holding solo exhibitions overseas.
This time, Umezawa again confronts his fear of losing consciousness through dying, a long-time concern of his, and connects it with the image of black that he has been creating in recent years.
We will hold this exhibition in two parts to introduce Umezawa’s latest works. It opens on 25th July, when we welcome members of the public to visit.
