“Quantize”, a solo exhibition by Tsuyoshi Hisakado, marks the Kyoto-based artist’s debut in Singapore, and is also an opportunity to showcase new works that he has worked on since his last show at the gallery’s space in Tokyo. With an interest to pursue ambiguous memories using the form of sound and sculpture, Hisakado will turn the gallery space into a multi-dimensional one full of sensitivity.
The exhibition title “Quantize” is a term for electronic music — an automatic adjustment of randomly input music data to a form of grids. It specifically symbolizes the artist’s style of giving certain rhythms to unlimited expansion of time and memory.
This exhibition is an installation in itself, with a mixture of surrounding sounds and flickering lights. Once viewers step into the exhibition space, vague shapes of Hisakado’s works appear in the blinking lights and also with a roaring background sound, creating the feeling of being surrounded by a mythical time of eternity and instant moments. A light in the installation work hung from ceiling blinks constantly according to the sound of writing on paper, while loud roaring noise from speakers drown out the pencil’s running sounds – the noise a mixture of rain and wind.
