The first solo exhibition in the UK, “Dead Angle” by artist Mai Miyake will be held at ICN gallery. She has been chosen as one of the 10 female artists who are active in the Japanese contemporary art world. What is remarkable of her work is the use of Classic literature formats and stories, expressing Japanese traditional aesthetics in the modern sense by reconstructing them cynically and humorously,

The theme behind the exhibition is “Dead Angle”, which has been Miyake`s long-term exploration. It will feature approximately 20 pieces including Hanikamu Series that has the message that depending on the perspective or the way things are perceived, it will reflect a different world, a new Ukiyo-e that was made possible by the collaboration with Adachi Traditional Block-Print Technology Preservation Foundation, as well as other installations.
