As a project of "Ichihara Art × Mix 2017", the artist Hiraku Suzuki’s solo exhibition “Road" will be held at Art House ASOBARA Valley (Ichihara, Chiba).
He sees the theme of "drawing" not only as the lines drawn on the plane, but as the theory and practice of deconstructing the traces of signs that are distributed in our everyday world and rearranging them through physical implementation to generate new circuitry in space and time. In recent years, while taking in the phenomena of light, he has produced and exhibited various forms of work across the realm both nationally and internationally.This time, he was inspired by the many hand-dug tunnels still left in the prefectural roadside, while investigating the very rare topography along the Yoro River, where ancient strata are exposed to the ground.In the exhibition “Road“, a number of new works which involve light reflector and stainless steel as materials will be displayed in each room, making full use of the complicated structure of old Japanese-style house built more than 100 years ago. In addition, his new sculpture work “Warp”, which made with light reflectors embedded in a stone monument, will be installed in the open-air area generating a space consisting the entrance/ inside/ exit of the road which creates a wandering path.
