FP Brussels welcomes Yoyo Maeght who will present the exhibition of Yaki Kuroda.
In this first one-man show of the artist in Belgium (since 1995), visitors will discover a series of new works (2016/2017) plus several emblematic paintings. Through his works, Aki Kuroda takes us to a world laden with ancient myths and stories from his country, Japan. He creates “passages” between different worlds: modernism and contemporary art, East and West, the body and the cosmos, mythology and the future. Very large colourful canvases take up the spaces of Hangar on the theme of the Cosmogarden (interior and external garden/everything is blended in an oneiric jungle).
Once again, as on various occasions in Japan, Aki Kuroda wanted to work together with architects. Hangar proposed a cooperation with students of interior architecture at the Mons school of art, Arts2, to build an ephemeral teahouse. This project, in line with Aki’s world and drawings, blends in with the setting of the exhibition.
Date and time 18th of April, from 16:00 PM to 20:00 PM
