Shiseido Art Egg 8_Shusuke Kano
by Shiseido Gallery
Location: Shiseido Gallery
Artist(s): Shunsuke KANO
Date: 10 Jan - 2 Feb 2014

At first glance you might think you're seeing a sculpture made from the banding often used on wooden packing crates. Upon closer examination, though, you discover that it's actually a photograph of such banding that has been adhered to a wooden box, then wrapped in another band, photographed again and pasted on again, and so on, in a repeated process of photographing the object and then adhering the photo to the object, building up layers of embedded images on the final sheet of printing paper.

For this exhibition Shunsuke Kano presents new works of sculpture created through this elaborate process, as well as printed photographic works emphasizing the fact that photographs are merely phenomena on the printing paper. Kano works with the relationships between objects and images he finds around him, stimulating viewers to become more conscious and questioning of many of the “presupposed structures” that we so often overlook.
