Project room: Hiraku Suzuki

Hiraku Suzuki was born in Japan and lives and works in Tokyo. His mode of practice is based mainly on drawing but also includes installations, wall painting and video as well as experimental and musical performance. His work draws heavily on the vast gallery of signs and hieroglyphs he has developed by focusing on the forms, rythms and materials of his immediate environment. By acting on phenomena and situations that are anodyne, insignificant even in appearance, he allows us to enter into a new space/time relationship, in which his pieces bear the discreet but evocative mark of his action. His early works were collected together by the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art (Kanazawa, Japan) and he has taken part in numerous exhibitions in Japan, Sweden, Norway, Australia, Brazil, etc. In 2006, his work was exhibited in the Galerie du Jour Project Room.
Genga is the young artist Hiraku Suzuki’s first catalogue; a pocket-sized book containing over 1000 drawings. If a dictionary existed that could decode this new language, it would place Genga, the sketch, between gengo the language and ginga the galaxy. Published by Kawade Shobo Shinsha,
with the support of the agnès b. Endowment Fund / price: 30 euros (105/149/60 mm, 1008 pages)
Signature of the book Genga by Iraku Suzuki on Saturday, June 26th from 5 pm till 7 pm.
