“Jomon Echoes in the Anthropocene” is a solo exhibition of new works by Ryunosuke Okazaki, curated by Akiinoue. An art graduate, Okazaki has gained recognition in the fashion scene, hosting runway shows in September 2021 and March 2022. He was also selected as a finalist for the “LVMH Prize 2022.” His unconventional artistic style explores new possibilities in contemporary art.

Hailing from Hiroshima, Okazaki draws inspiration from the history and nature of his hometown. He describes his artistic process as a ritualistic and prayerful act, paying homage to the history and nature that surround him. The “JOMONJOMON” series presented in this exhibition takes its roots from the ancient Jomon period, spanning approximately ten thousand years. The works evoke the Jomon pottery created by people of that era, characterized by undulating curves and intricate decorations.

The exhibition, “Jomon Echoes in the Anthropocene,” is divided into two parts, with Part 1 featuring approximately 8 small-scale works and Part 2 showcasing a large-scale installation.

Part 1: January 19  – February 11
Part 2: February 16 – March 10
