Tokyo Fantasy vol.2
October 8 – October 14, 2014 10:30am – 8pm (Last day until 5pm)
Gallery Talk Show October 11, 2014 2pm – 3pm

Music resounds through the night from speakers amidst countless glittering neon lights.
New buildings rise one after the other, and then demolished with the same speed. Light
and sound reflect loudly off bustling cars. This is a city where the old and new, and light
and shadow exist together, and appears disoriented with the accumulation of many artificial
things, yet has a sparkling, mysterious look to it. This place, Tokyo, is truly like a fantasy
world.

Today, people are linked to each other and the rest of the world through the Internet.
People commute in and out of cities, and go through many distractions in their daily lives.
Tokyo culture has become ubiquitous, and with the increase in complexity has brought about a
multitude of points of view, new ways of understanding.
Within this sparkling, shining city lies a perennial gray, a nebulous unease about the unforeseeable
future. Here lives a society that is so saturated with information from every direction that it is
hard to see what has meaning and value.

The energy that we find ourselves steeped in has created an awareness of fantasy within ourselves.
It evokes feelings of unfathomable beauty, distant memories, things non-human, expressing a more
exact shape of the inner world. We look for hope within this fantasy. Within the fantasy, we long
to search for truth. All of these things overflow into the outside world and blur the line between
fantasy and reality, creating the intangible harmony and staggering fantasy world that is Tokyo.

Akinori Tanaka Solo Exhibition
January 29 – February 4, 2014 10:30am – 8pm (last day until 4:30pm)
Talk Show February 1, 2014 2pm – 2:30pm

Starting with Aoyama’s Les Cristallines in Tokyo, owner and chef Akinori Tanaka has opened restaurants
that specialize in French cuisine around Japan’s capital, including Shinjuku and Shibuya. Mr. Tanaka
began creating art with the aim of decorating his restaurants with his own paintings, which visualize
his knowledge and passion for cooking. This new exhibition incorporates new oil paintings, and also
features the series of popular wines, salads, main courses, and even desert. These 40 new lively paintings
display Tanaka’s characteristic use of vibrant colors, and we hope you enjoy them all. Come experience
Mr. Tanaka’s colorful cuisine as this vivid tale of food continues to grow.

Bringing Memories to Life
January 28 – February 3, 2014 10am – 7:30pm

We are pleased to present this collection by four women whose diverse styles of art come together
through the motif of memory. Bringing memories to life through many different filters, these artists
recreate experiences and moments from daily life—scenery imbued with a sense of remembrance.

The works presented here feature a range of styles including collages, graphic, hand-drawing, embroidery
on canvas. The design of these reconstructed memories may look simple: after all, they originate from
simple experiences. But they are also nuanced and perhaps ambiguous as they weave pieces of the past
into something that feels more real than reality. Through this collection, spectators can relive their own
memories. Perhaps you, too, have memories that, through the way they look and feel, connect you to the
artists’ own recollections.

We hope that these artists, whose collections erase the boundary between ordinary and extraordinary and
highlight the connections between all of us, invoke in everyone who views their work a sense of the power
of imagination and memory.
