Acting Out of Nothingness: from the APT Collection

4127

Coinciding with the 2013 Frieze London Art Fair in neighbouring Regent’s Park, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and the APT Institute are pleased to present the group exhibition Acting Out of Nothingness featuring the contemporary Japanese artists Kanako Sasaki, Koki Tanaka, Zon Ito, Goro Murayama, Motohiro Tomii, Masahiro Wada and Lyota Yagi. The exhibition will display artworks lent by the APT Institute from the Artist Pension Trust (APT) collection, the largest contemporary lending library worldwide.

Acting Out of Nothingness unites individual views through the lens of a shared interest in the everyday. Driven by ideas resonant to Japanese culture, the artworks explore and unearth hidden codes, which are often overlooked, in an apparently systematic and homogenised society. Challenging traditional perceptions, the exhibition layers new rhythms of individuality over the measured cadence of the artists’ collective backgrounds.

Artist Talk: 15 October 2013
For this artist talk, the Director of APT Institute, Justin R. Merino will describe in detail the work of his organisation. The artist Kanako Sasaki, who is featured in the exhibition ‘Acting Out of Nothingness’, will introduce her photography and explain the thoughts and processes that inform her work. London-based Japanese photographer Tomoko Yoneda whose work addresses similar themes will lead a discussion on journalism, history and contemporary photography . The speakers will also debate on the topic of Japanese photography today.
