Artist Talk: Tokyo Rumando×Hideka Tonomura in conversation with Dr Simon Baker

Tokyo Rumando and Hideka Tonomura’s works depict two starkly contrasting types of reality. Rumando explores the reality of her own past inner life, while Tonomura radiates her own concept of reality on to the life surrounding her. Like doppelgängers, their artworks printed on paper are physical manifestations of the souls of the artists, and they blur the borders between the objective existence of the print and the inner souls of these photographers. For this event, the artists will be joined in conversation by Dr Simon Baker, Director of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris.

Artist Talk: System as Medium and System as Motif, Goro Murayama

Systems Art is an approach associated with the dematerialisation of artworks, the tendency towards taking information and process as a medium, and the rise of cybernetic art in contemporary art. For this event Murayama will be joined in conversation by Dr Francis Halsall, art historian and author of the book “Systems of Art” (2008), to discuss how the artist connects the idea of Autopoiesis, self-sustaining systems, to his artistic practice in the hemp painting series, as well as to other bodies of works that explore the systems we live in.

Private View: Emergence of Order by Goro Murayama

Goro Murayama expresses self-organising processes and patterns through painting and drawings. He is particularly interested in fundamental theories of life systems, namely autopoiesis (self-creation), and the diverse life-like patterns implemented in computer-simulated cellular automata (discrete models studied in science).
Murayama’s works attain a unique expression by introducing these self-organising processes into them. For Murayama, painting is a mandala of emergences that appears when the mind, affected by forms and shapes, reiterates and amasses actions.

Private View: Setsuko Ono

In 2018 Japanese artist Setsuko Ono will bring her work to London for the first time.
Ono creates steel sculptures characterised by their cut-out shapes, forming open and closed figures and designs. The cut-out silhouettes are bent in an animated way, while the cut-out negatives let sunlight and views of nature through.
The exhibition will include sculpture and mixed media paintings that reflect the artist’s interest in international politics; visitors will be able to use virtual reality goggles to experience Ono’s permanent installations in Japan.
