2023. 12. 14 Thu. - 2023. 12. 16 Sat.We are pleased to announce that DMOARTS will reorganize the exhibition planned for 2020 with new artists. This project will be held in an office space where many people interact and spend a lot of time, and will feature carefully selected artworks recommended for collection. In addition to exhibiting works that are easy to collect, this year's exhibition will also feature installations that will allow visitors to enjoy the space with art. Please enjoy viewing art in an exhibition environment different from that of a museum or gallery.

Based on the theme of "reframing the everyday," she uses industrial products such as blue sheets, rubber bands, ballast stones, non-woven fabrics, and water threads as materials for her works. By incorporating these familiar items into her works, she hopes to create an opportunity to reconsider the value of things.
She is also interested in what can be seen from the vast repetition of regular acts.
She persistently overlaps very simple dyeing and weaving techniques, such as squeezing and weaving, on a single object. She also attempts to express her own impulse and obsession for making things, which arise from the linkage with the physical sensation associated with the act.
Chiharu Yakushikawa develops her own unique paintings in various ways based on the theme of "pair" relationships.
In her "Right and Left Hand" series, in which She applies paint directly to her right and left hands and paints by hand, she uses pigments she has mixed herself to express a mixture of the individual and the other.
She has also chosen various methods of expression for each of her works, such as the "knock" series, which focuses on the act of knocking, a signal before entering the other's territory, regarding the relationship between the self and others in a society with developed social networking services.
Born in Tokyo, Japan in 1982, he is a photographer and contemporary artist based in Tokyo and London.
Graduated from the Faculty of Environment and Information Studies, Keio University, and received an M.F.A. in Photography from the Royal College of Art.
He mastered remote sensing using satellites and began working on the theme of "human beings" and "life" using one of his devices, a thermal imaging camera. He has been expanding the scope of his creative activities by actively taking in new mediums and technologies, including installation, video, and new media. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions and projects in Japan and abroad.
She creates paintings using images inspired by motifs and texts from modern Japanese literature, classics, and Japanese mythology, as well as scenes and words from her own poetry and prose.
Interested in the nature of words, whose meanings change depending on the context before and after and on the recipient, the artist expresses the transformation of the meaning content by the collapse of the shape of the letters on the screen.
Born in Fukuoka in 1981. Studied sculptural expression at Kyushu Sangyo University and completed graduate studies at Tokyo University of the Arts.
While in school, he studied sculpture, mainly stone, and composed motifs of academic forms and musical influences, creating works with a sense of tension that shakes up the state of sculpture in our time.
He considers the "impulse" that wells up from within to be an important element, and his three-dimensional works are characterized by the use of artificial materials such as scrap wood and concrete, while maintaining the strength of "objects" that are not frivolous in any way.
In 2012, he moved to New York City, where he began working with materials such as discarded items collected in the city and large trees that had been cut down for safety reasons, and developed his current style of working with bricolage.
In 2015, he relocated to his hometown of Fukuoka and set up a studio in a corner of his family's concrete products factory.
He is presenting a concrete work on a scale exceeding 3 tons in weight at an exhibition in Kitakyushu, Japan, in 2020.
He draws with line and color and a variety of materiality.
His subjects include group portraits, plants, landscapes that you will forget in five minutes, and portrait images automatically generated by AI.
In recent years, I have been working on an AI-generated portrait image -something that is no one- (stino), which aims to eliminate personal relationships with the subject (my relationships with friends, relatives, lovers, business associates, etc.) and build relationships only through what I draw.
Born in 1989 in Osaka, Japan, she completed her master's degree in oil painting at Kyoto City University of Arts in 2014.
She works at the collaborative studio punto in Kyoto.
With the theme of considering the essential nature of the human organism, she creates paintings that reconsider human behavior through the depiction of plants as familiar "others" to humans and "symbols" for humans.
