Thoughts on Sparseness and Density

Period : April 24, 2021 – May 30, 2021

Thoughts on Sparseness and Density KIMURA Taiyo, + - People, 1997

In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 has changed the lives of people all over the world. In order to prevent the spread of the virus, we have been urged to avoid “crowding” and keep social distancing. Therefore, we cannot help but be aware of the distance between us, and the space we are in.

The days when we could freely come and go anywhere, gather together and engage in activities, and communicate with people without hesitation, have changed drastically, and we are now required to restrict or refrain from doing so in many situations. The days when we could be “close” with no worries have become a kind of nostalgia, and now we are forced to adapt to the “new normal,” seeing various trials and errors around us.
 Artists from all over the world, past and present, have confronted the theme of space and approached it from a variety of perspectives. Among them, “sparse/dense” features are important elements that determine the nature of artworks. This exhibition explores the distance between people in a space of artworks, and introduces works that are conscious of sparseness and density, such as blank spaces and accumulation, in order to reconsider the relationship between people and things in a space.
