KENSUKE KOIKE ON EXHIBIT IN VENICE: VENICE HOSTS THE EXHIBITION OF THE JAPANESE ARTIST AT THE 'A PLUS A' GALLERY FROM MARCH 11 TO MAY 6 2017.
His idea is that he couldn’t give birth to something out of nothing: the creative process starts from the old photographic and video material, reworked with the technique of collage. The past is rejuvenated and the present almost ironically allows the viewer to appreciate a new reality.
Koike restores new life at the time, that assumes a double value: the recovery and the rediscovery. All the works in the space of A plus A are introduced by an installation in which the transformation of matter is manifested through a petrified “marble forest” that introduces the viewer into a sensory journey, full of visual pitfalls that train the ability to a multiple reading of things.
