KISHIO SUGA: SITUATED LATENCY

$ 55.00

Japanese sculptor and installation artist Kishio Suga is a key member of Mono-ha, a group of artists who explore encounters between natural and industrial materials with their works. It represents a departure from notions of the artist’s intention, instead allowing the material itself to activate and speak, focusing as much on the various elements’ interdependency and surrounding space as on the ephemerality of the materials themselves. This catalogue accompanied the exhibition by the same name at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, and traces Suga’s development from the 1960s and ’70s until today. Included are sketches and quoted material from the artist’s own production notebooks. Features texts by the artist, Yuko Hasegawa, Naoko Seki, and Simon Groom.
