About

Focusing on ideas of memory and excavation, the work of Hiraku Suzuki centres around an expanded notion of drawing; encompassing works on paper and panels, installation, murals, frottages as well as live drawing performance. Much of his work hinges on the vast library of signs and glyphs he has developed by focusing on the shapes, forms, rhythms and materials of his immediate environment. For this exhibition Suzuki will exhibit around 40 new drawings together with sculptures produced during the Tokyo Wonder Site residency at Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon (CCW), University of the Arts London. These works, referencing the Rosetta Stone, are an exploration of his ideas on the genesis of language and drawing itself. Inspired by the residual images from the transformation of sunbeams streaming through leaves on the road, the work encapsulates the memory of the first glyph or drawing; and by using everyday materials such as silver markers and spray paint, graphite and stones that he has picked up in front of his residence, alongside cast aluminium, he pursues an alternative archaeology which links past, present and future.
