ICN gallery proudly presents “the way of mending holes” by artist Seijiro Niwa who has been consistently producing photos and 3D works under the theme of picture boundary and human eyesight’s end. The exhibition will feature his latest 2D and 3D works.

I should be in my world but I am not in the world that I see. Do I exist as the missing part of this world that I see? Or as some extra part? In order to make the world that I see a beautiful and perfect one, I must stop seeing. In front of my eyes that stopped seeing the world, a beautiful and unsubstantial world must be spreading out, too. – Seijiro Niwa

In May 4th from 14:00 to 15:30, the Artist Talk “Frame and picture story” will be held there. Frames that surround pictures. They tend to be let by as natural items at art viewings, but if you watch them carefully, you notice that they are very interesting. Here, picture frames’ making process and their design evolution afterwards are deciphered from the relationship with the space presentation of the picture inside and the place where it is displayed, also about his latest works.
