2021.6.29いよいよ明日はオープニング。Finally the opening day tomorrow…
個展「Solitude」開催に向けて、ギャラリーを有機物と音楽で包んでくれる二人のアーティスト、En priereの佐藤かずきさん、Frank Weber氏の空間演出も、是非お楽しみください。
Finally…tomorrow is the opening day of my solo exhibition “Solitude” in Sapporo, after almost 1.5 years since I had the last one. I am a bit nervous but at the same time, I am feeling that something deep inside of me is gently being fulfilled.
I think that many of us in this world, might have been experiencing a life of somewhat being “stuck” under the given circumstances. Then we try to put ourselves in a place where we can balance between the realities and how we feel and think about things as naturally as possible…leading to have lots of internal conversations within ourselves…in solitude.
I hope my works may light up your heart.
My sincere appreciation to my collaborative partners, for their creative contribution to this exhibition;
Kazuki Sato for her beautiful arrangement with organic materials;
Frank Weber for his music exclusively and improvisationally created for the theme “Solitude”.
I will see you there!
会期: 2021.6.30 – 7.3
会場: BISSE GALLERY (札幌大通りビッセ3F)
Welcome and thank you for visiting me at Jun’s Light.
Here I am, finally…
Today is the opening day for renewing my website as Jun’s Light. It’s been a big ongoing exciting project for me since the last year…there in 2020, I was not able to hold any of my solo exhibitions to display my works in person under the pandemic circumstances. But the situation actually had guided me be able to have a lot of thinking processes of what I would do for the next years to come as an artist.
I looked back my way of living in so many ways.
I am truly grateful for what I have received such wonderful opportunities to cultivate my world of artistry over the years. I deeply feel humbled to be able to express human nature in a form of art.
Living with this totally unexpected situation that is shared universally, I also realized that I had not been spending enough time for my internal self. It had almost always been the case where I would just follow this “routine” in which I would schedule my next exhibitions and create works by then. Always, I used to put myself “due” on something. With being occupied with updating my postings and keeping in touch with communications with others….constantly. Now I think of, that particular speed of multitasking things had eventually brought me a great sense of exhaustion.
So, I decided to be living under water for a long time. It was totally fulfilling experience to give myself plenty of silent time and space…being in Solitude.
Gradually, I started to reorganize my routine works and renewing my website was one of them.
I met this incredibly talented designer, Mr. Kurahashi and a web programmer Mr.Sasaki. Their friendly manner and professional advices have led me “feel” the nature of myself as an artist again and “learn” about what I have done and how I would like to go from there…and more than anything, I was so happy to be creative with them as a team. Although there are pages that are still under constructions, I would like to show my process of cultivating my world in online settings in more naturally gentle pace…just like growing melting wax pool in a candle light.
These are some of the contexts on this website that are going to be available soon:
Arts Meet Music
Milky Way Project (Theater project)
Archives of collaborative works for Museum Art Exhibitions
Hope you enjoy visiting my new website from time to time, and I would be delighted to hear from you!
