Following his presentation at Art Stage 2015 and Clear Edition & Gallery, Tokyo last year, facing the afterimage brings together new and existing works that exemplifies Mikito Ozeki’s unceasing exploration into the potentialities of paper cutting.
Just as computers can produce numerous images via basic programming based on binary codes (“zeros” and “ones”), Ozeki likens himself to a machine that continuously outputs his own after-image, updating itself day after day. In contrast to automatism, which avoids conscious intention, Ozeki’s practice is contingent on a much more physical and disciplined movement of his entire body.
Opening Reception: 8 May, Friday, 6 – 9 pm
The artist will be presenting a live paper cutting demonstration at the opening.
