Vik Muniz: Handmade
2017 9.14 – 11.4
Opening Reception: Galerie Nichido (5-3-16 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo) | September 14th (Thu.) 18:00 – 20:00 (Artist in attendance)
galerie nichido and nca | nichido contemporary art are pleased to present a joined exhibition of Brazilian artist Vik Muniz, each gallery showing simultaneously different bodies of works.
Since the beginning in the 1990s, Vik Muniz has been presenting his work in the form of photographs, sometimes reproductions of famous paintings, sometimes news photographs that tell us about history, while always playing with different materials -wires, sugar, diamonds, chocolate, and colored paper – to convey his message. galerie nichido is presenting the series REPRO made by using scraps from catalogues, advertising and printed materials of museums that are related to the works in question, and images obtained from the Internet, while nca | nichido contemporary art is showing his new “Handmade” series, composed of 13 pieces and created through a combination of “real material” (three-dimensional) and photographs of that very material (two-dimensional).
Galerie nichido | Mon.-Fri. 10:00 – 19:00 / Sat., holidays: 11:00 – 18:00 (Closed on Sunday)
nca | Tue.-Sat. 11:00 – 19:00 (Closed on Sunday, Monday and National holidays)
