KIKA gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of contemporary artist Kazuya Nakayama.
Obtained a master’s degree in architecture from Shibaura Institute of Technology and completed an artist course at Center for Contemporary Art (CCA) Kitakyushu, Nakayama has been focusing on “now” and “here” events caused by objects or things that he set up around the exhibition site. For example, he makes a lovers meet in an impossible situation, or invite water buffalo to a museum… Please don’t miss the opportunity to experience Kazuya Nakayama’s world, which is like “happenings” and which is rarely seen in Kyoto.
Kazuya Nakayama has a master's degree in construction engineering from Shibaura Institute of Technology, and completed the artist course of Research Program at Center for Contemporary Art Kitakyushu, CCA. He also worked in the ateliers of Jean-Luc Vilmouth, Guillaume Paris, Tadashi Kawamata as a guest researcher at École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, France (until 2017). Recent exhibitions include Partie de campagne (titre parapluie) (Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris-Pantin), Exhibition of Kuandu Residency Program (Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei) and many others.
Rather than exhibits some works that are prepared before, Nakayama focuses on what happens in "here" and "now", he intuitionally visualizes the feeling of the site. Nakayama pushes a beginning of a movement, such as an unexpected encounter for lovers in an impossible circumstance, or a work that to be late for an exhibition, moreover, a work that a summer orange rolls on a slope in a forest, Nakayama present the situation or outcome that occur as an art work.
