Art Front Gallery is pleased to present the two solo shows of Yoshitaka Nanjo.
Sea Drop is related to the installation of salt just opened for Setouchi Triennale 2019.
Nanjo, issued from Sakaide in the area of Inland Sea, visualized the history of salt production from the sea.
He also was interested in the notion of "place" to create another installation on the subject of pilgrimage Kumanomoude.
Yoshitaka Nanjo now lives in Kumano, and he exhibits his sharply sensitivity work nurtured by his viewpoints on region’s historical, religious and geographical significations, infused with his personal experiences.
Gods of the Kumano mountains might be viewing all this from afar, and if so, with their gently different expressions, they surely chuckle at the development of Nanjo’s work, as they ponder his artistic future.
Until 8 July

- Event Details ART FRONT GALLERY pleased to announce that we hold special exhibition "Breathe (In the Air)" at DAIKANYAMA T-SITE anjin café. This exhibition shows small three-dimensional works by six young Japanese artists, who avidly pursue the new values of Japanese crafts in the field of ceramic, glass, and lacquer. The title of this exhibition, "Breathe (In the Air)" originally comes from the title of the ballad by Pink Floyd, which was recorded for their masterpiece album "The Dark Side of the Moon" in 1973. This song is about to talk a newborn living entity its coming life, feelings, and actions which it might experience from its birth to death. Inspired from this slow-paced and rich in texture ballad, we picked up melting-like organic shaped works which make us feel breath of the life at the time of the melting snow. All appropriately sized works are to takeout just after purchasing. We are looking forward to you feeling energy of the life through this exhibition.
Until 28 April
- Dates 10 April 2019, 11:00AM - 28 April 2019, 7:59PM
“Decorativeness” and “playfulness”, as a feature of Japanese art, can be found in craft work going back to Jomon pottery in ancient world. Folding screens or ceramics produced by Rimpa School in Edo Period were followed by metal works or lacquerware for export winning prizes at the World Expositions in the West. All these historical heritage seems to be still alive, transformed into contemporary craftsmanship.
Artwork with various materials are exhibited in Spring Blossoms: Pop & Modern to show latest streams in pottery, glasswork, lacquerware or bamboo work. In addition to traditional innovation to maximize the charm of materials in their original ways, very often artists work with Nature. They aim at generating energy of life with power of materials through repetitive act such as hammering, wheeling, splitting or shaping. Almost meditative work, associated with ancient ritual, will induce their original texture or color scheme. This time, thirteen artists, both established and emerging, will be exhibited issued from area of Kansai, Hokuriku and Kanto. We hope that you enjoy the variety of beauty going beyond the border of Kogei or crafts work.
