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.

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.

Femininity, Self-Harm and Eating Disorders in Japan: Navigating contradiction in narrative and visual culture

From the 1980s onwards, the incidence of eating disorders and self-harm has been on the rise amongst Japanese women. Mirroring this, women’s self-directed violence is a theme increasingly seen in Japanese narrative and visual cultures.

Dr Gitte Marianne Hansen will discuss the relationship between normative femininity and women’s self-directed violence in contemporary Japanese culture, examining a range of well-known works such as Hayao Miyazaki’s animations alongside more unfamiliar creations. Hear how women’s private struggles with their own bodies have now become public discourse, available for consumption as entertainment and lifestyle products.
