Yoshimi Arts is pleased to present “0years”, a solo show by Keigo Kamide and the 3rd commemorative exhibition for our 10th anniversary.
Throughout his solo shows such as “Isolated” (2011), “Floating” (2013), “Quiet Storm” (2014) and “αM Project 2013: The Earthly Paradise, vol. 3 Keigo Kamide” (2013, gallery αM), Kamide has comprehensively explored his artistic origins, the Kutani ware, and placing himself within the context of the history of East Asian porcelain, has used methods that could be described as mythical to consider the time and place occupied by porcelain.
During the four years after this, he participated in solo shows such as “BEAR MOUNTAIN or MOUNTAIN BEAR” (2015, Matsuzakaya Nagoya Art Gallery), “Bears Live In The Hollow” (2016, Yoshimi Arts), “Forgotten banáns” (2017, Tokyo Nihombashi Takashimaya Art Gallery X), and “Porcelain Sculpture” (2018, Yokohama Takashimaya Art Gallery / 2019, Matsuzakaya Nagoya Art Gallery) through which he expressed his environment and thoughts through the motif of a bear, and also rejected the banana motif that he had been creating since his graduation show at Tokyo University of the Arts. Then, by applying sculptural methods learned in his childhood to porcelain, he devoted himself to looking inwards and confronting himself, and attempted to make contact with something deeper within—memory.
In 2019, for “The 14th Ceramic Art Grand Prize Exhibition” (Paramita Museum) and his solo show, “Still Life” (Yoshimi Arts), Kamide explored the idea of porcelain as sculpture. Using Kamide Choemon kiln products as motifs, he produced works with a sense of purity.
In this exhibition, Kamide pursues the fundamental origins of his inspiration, digging further into, and beyond, his childhood, which he confronted in the “Porcelain Sculpture” exhibition. The new works include experimental pieces where he has applied sculptural methods based on his drawings, to probe more deeply into form; the newest white glazed biscuits of banana porcelain works, which represents the origin of his creative activity; and other media, such as oil painting and wood.
