Yoshimi Arts is pleased to announce the “Quiet Storm” exhibition by Keigo Kamide.
Keigo Kamide is the sixth generation heir of Kamide Choemon-gama Kutani pottery which is a 135-year-old pottery manufacturer. He has acted as director of Kamide Choemon-gama and has exhibited his own works as an independent artist.
At Yoshimi gallery, he held a solo exhibition ”Isolated”(2011) as a tribute to pioneers and his forefathers, inspired by a trip to the birth place of Kutani ware. Next, in his solo exhibition “Floating”(2013), he tried to imagine the future which the pioneers and forefathers might have followed.
He showed two worlds - past and future- through the history of Kutani ware.
In 2013, he had a solo exhibition for the seven-artist project, “The Earthly Paradise”, organized by Yasuyuki Nakai (curator of National Museum of Art, Osaka) at Musashino Art University’s gallery αM. In this current exhibition, the work, 'Turban Shell "Shell in Sea of Ink"', was set apart from the other works.
It can be considered Kamide’s self-portrait and it will be the focus of the exhibition.
