Under the concept of regarding the essence of Tadanori Yokoo’s art as “incompleteness”, this exhibition shows us Tadanori Yokoo’s creations focusing on his various and dynamic creative styles in which he has been making works inspired by a wide range of things. For example, you can see Yokoo’s past creation which is displayed next to his recent work created based on such previous piece, and his another work, which was made extracting from Rousseau’s creation, is shown together with the image of such original work (the original work itself is not displayed). In addition, you can find some fully planned ideas in display forms of this exhibition. For instance, next to the “Y Junction” series, the image of their creating scenes is being aired, and paintings of falls and some objets d’art (small artworks) are displayed casually in each exhibition room. The display space is composed of some relatively small rooms, which may give you a compact image of this exhibition. Nonetheless, I am sure you will gain a quality time there.

By the way, the “Morikage Kusumi Exhibition - The 50th anniversary of the opening of Ishikawa Prefectural Museum of Art” (26/Sep/2009-25/Oct/2009) is being held in Ishikawa Prefectural Museum of Art, located approximately ten minutes’ walk from 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Ishikawa. This exhibition provides us with an opportunity to encounter good pieces which were made by past artists who succeeded in enhancing the quality of their works by actively referring to paintings drawn by Chinese and Japanese creators. It would be really regrettable to let such an opportunity to just pass on the ground that it is not a “modern art” exhibition. I highly recommend you to visit this exhibition together with the “Tadanori Yokoo Incomplete” when you get a chance. These two exhibitions have one thing in common in that they show the exhibits created by the artists who have established their own creative styles by extracting and interpreting past creations in exceptional ways.
