Teppei Kaneuji’s First Solo Exhibition
April 26, 2009
Japanese young artist teppei kaneuji’s first solo exhibition ‘melting city/ empty forest’ is currently on view at yokohama museum of art, japan.
Teppei Kaneuji’s work poses a visual riddle that upsets the boundaries between movement and invariability, between substance and illusion. using collage and bricollage techniques, in other words, pasting and assembling a mishmash of objects together, kaneuji says, ‘i want to create something you feel you’ve seen before, but don’t understand.’ in the process, kaneuji creates an as-yet-unknown form of plastic art that incorporates familiar objects like magazine clippings, plastic manufactured goods, and wood. these works of art stimulate the viewer with a cross between pleasant childhood memories of being engrossed with a particular game and complex amalgamated images with evocative intellectual associations.
