Material Witness by Saya Kubota

Material Witness presents Saya Kubota’s new bodies of works around memory and physical traces of the past which, although they have seemingly altered in form or even to have disappeared, still persist in the present time and space. From modified paintings to an unusual postal service, they signal what their material existences might have witnessed. The solo exhibition at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation will present her two different bodies of works: Material Witness and the Missing Post Office UK.

Artist talk: 9 February 2016

The Missing Post Office UK by Saya Kubota

The Missing Post Office invites you to post a letter, like a message in a bottle, which will float on the sea of time. A letter to and from anyone, anything, anywhere and at any time, which will one day be washed ashore. This artist talk introduces its temporal UK branch, opened as part of Saya Kubota’s solo exhibition Material Witness. Mr Brian Payne, Missing Post Office UK, will be in conversation with the artist, where they will discuss the letters and postcards received at the UK MPO branch hosted at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation.

Private view: 25 February 2016

Like A Prime Number by Enrico Isamu Oyama

Daiwa Foundation is pleased to present Like A Prime Number, a solo exhibition by Enrico Isamu Oyama.
Oyama is best known for the signature style Quick Turn Structure (QTS): minimal, free-flowing motifs of repetitive lines, developed from the visual language of graffiti culture and contextualized in the realm of contemporary art.
QTS is perceived by the artist as an infinite driving force with its own life; one that inhabits a higher dimension invisible to us. As a mediator, Oyama temporarily summons QTS into the physical world and captures the fragmented imprints of its unstoppable motion, visualising them on a plethora of surfaces. These include not only physical objects such as walls, canvases and papers, but also digital, conceptual and social platforms such as videos, live performances and collaborations with fashion brands.
