    The act of "reproduction" brings about "displacement. Even though an object is traced as it is, a subtle "shift" occurs, and even though it looks the same, it has already been transformed into something else (changes that occur when the illustration is reconstructed by transforming it into light and shadow, or the physicality of the person making the reproduction, coincidence, etc.). Such "displacement" also occurs when we communicate with others. Although we simply want to convey our thoughts to the other person in words, it is rare that our thoughts are conveyed in a straightforward manner. Understanding is always the sum of misunderstanding, and there is always a vague "membrane" that exists. I try to visualize such a "membrane," that is, the impossibility and incompleteness of communication, by borrowing it temporarily into a work of art that contains the "gap" created by the act of "reproduction. This is one of my creative concepts.

    DMOARTS is pleased to present “there-was,” a duo exhibition of works by Ryoki Kurasaki and Kurumi Kotani. The exhibition focuses on the concept of two contemporaries having in common ‘trace’ or ‘sign’ ― in other words, what ‘there-was.’



    倉崎稜希|Ryoki Kurasaki
    Kurasaki finishes his pieces of work by processing with fire as a metaphor for life. The substances and phenomena̶the exposed space and the transformed medium̶ that occurred by flame are his essential material. The exhibition “there-was” features the brand new series that wax-modeled framed painting melts by fire, as well as the partly burned portraited oil painting on the place where eyes are supposed to be.

    小谷くるみ|Kurumi Kotani
    Kotani presents mainly painting work in the theme of time, trace, sign̶in other words, what there was. The exhibition “there-was” features signature series “21g,” the entire surface is compared as “window,” and on the glass with condensation are traces of someone, and the series “Iron Rust,” which is even more ambitious for the artist.

    Ryoki Kurasaki & Kurumi Kotani collection book "Ryoki Kurasaki / Kurumi Kotani"
    The very first collection book of the two artist from "there-was." Release on November 21, 2020

He has been expanding his fields and holding exhibitions in the past four years annually, both in Osaka and Tokyo.

The illusion of relation between backgrounds and figures and matière emphasized by spray paint of her paintings make a gap in the viewer’s cognition.

    Kurumi Kotani|小谷くるみ
    Graduated the master's course at Kyoto University of Art and Design graduate school of Art Major, Art and Design Studies in 2019.
    Kotani’s paintings mention relationships and what there was. In Kurumi Kotani’s signature series 21g the entire surface is treated like a “window,” and on the glass with condensation are traces of someone. Kotani, who is interested in the mystical or supernatural phenomenon, creates an image that reminds us of horror movies and indicates the presence of something unsure.

    Ryoki Kurasaki|倉崎稜希
    Born in Fukuoka, 1995. Graduated Kyushu Designer Gakuin in 2016. By burning the spots where there supposed to be eyes were, Kurosaki pictures the reality of portraited motif.
    The specific phenomenon and chemically altered substances that occurred by flame are important materials in his portraited oil painting, as well as the exposed blankness and physical component of the canvas.
