Kazuna Taguchi is a Vienna-based artist who seeks to discover metaphysical concepts such as time and space through her multi-structured monochrome works. They are created through a multi-layered procedure. This includes taking pictures with multiple exposures and drawing oil paintings on printed photographic paper. Her works often include references to her past works of art on top of the application of existing images.
“A Quiet Sun” is presented in a bold yet delicate way. It’s an exhibition that brings to life myths and anonymous memories. The solid natural light that flows through the gallery is an attempt to interpret Taguchi’s awareness of problems in photography from different angles.

I AM gallery in Higashi-Nagasaki is hosting an exhibition by Iranian-Australian artist Elnaz Nourizadeh.
Nourizadeh’s artwork is recognizable due to its vivid use of color and contrast, which came from a rebellion against Iran’s traditional use of “blue.”
She creates both sculpture and functional ceramics using clay and other materials such as wood and metal. Her modern designs represent both emotions and motion. The ideas are expressed in irregular and often asymmetric, vessel shapes, as well as through combinations of different glazes and colors.
Nourizadeh has displayed her ceramics in both Melbourne and Tehran, in exhibitions such as the Iranian Ceramic Biennial and the Association of Sculptors Victoria Annual & Awards Exhibition. In 2016 she won the Art Almanac Prize at the latter for her sculpture “The Eye.”
Through the lenses of five photographers, “Yohaku // Empty Spaces” exhibits snapshots of depression and loneliness in between empty spaces. The photographers received messages from anonymous contributors about the words they say to themselves during their “not-so-good” days to cope with random episodes of loneliness.
You can still contribute words here.
