October 1 – November 24, 2019

Osamu James Nakagawa ‘s works will be on display alongside works by Kitano Ken, Shiga Lieko, Fiona Tan, & Gerhard Richter in the exhibition, from the cave.

”The use of a ‘cave’ as a motif to explore the origins of our cognition has an unexpectedly wide application. In his ‘Allegory of the Cave’ the philosopher, Plato, hinted at the fundamental problem of ‘the virtual image and reality’ that underlies our perception of images. The religious scholar, Mircea Eliade, pointed out that caves are employed as places in which to reestablish one’s relationship with the outside world and re-assess oneself at a fundamental level.”
