“Multiple Lighting“, a solo exhibition by Nobuyuki Osaki will be held from April 21 to May 26 at Yuka Tsuruno Gallery. In his first exhibition at the gallery in three years, Osaki will present works that address the ambiguity triggered by the expression of “disappearance of images”, as well as the fluidity of time and memory.
Departing from his interest in the world around him and how it is perceived, Osaki has been exploring how to express “uncertainty of reality”. Through unique materials and production methods he developed, he has been posing questions on the fictionality and reality of society by using the phenomenon and the process of the “disappearance of images”. In recent years, reflecting on how the prediction of the future or the past events are assumed as “reality”, he has produced works that profoundly examine the ambiguity of images as well as memory and time, and trigger feelings such as vagueness or nostalgia.
Based on such reflections, this exhibition presents untitled album photo (2016-2018) series which captured the moment the drawings he produced melt away, Observer which is an installation using mirrors, and Invisible/Visible/Unseen (2015), an installation work including “unseen” paintings that utilize techniques of printmaking and classical painting.
These series have been exhibited in Germany, Aichi prefecture where Osaki is based, and the Kansai region. However, this is their first presentation in Tokyo.
