Exhibition “The Point In Front Is Not The Point In Front Is Not”
The exhibition “The Point In Front Is Not The Point In Front Is Not” at Kyoto Art Center in Japan features works of our alumna Judith Seng and Yusuke Taninaka, both currently based in Berlin, and reflects on the relationship between performance and sculpture.
Both Seng and Taninaka create structures in which space, material, and the body interact. Sculpture, installations, and movements of the body are not separate, but, as a whole, indicate a process or a relationship, which makes possible compositions in which they can be seen as performative.
Seng is inspired by the Japanese tea ceremony she experienced in Kyoto, seeing its ceremonial nature as choreography, while Taninaka, always moving between the domains of sculpture and performance, intends to make relationships occur as "duration."
This exhibition shows two approaches by two artists with different cultural backgrounds and experiences, aiming to open a space of dialogue and reflection.
