About

This will be the first retrospective presentation of the rich heritage of the Japanese artist Koji Kamoji, who has been living and working in Poland since the 1960s. It comprises paintings, drawings, installations, spatial objects (including minimalist and ascetic works), as well as abstract compositions. Over the years, by carefully selecting the subject matter of his works  Kamoji has developed a catalogue of his favourite and most important motifs. The exhibition will reveal the artist’s personal imaginarium, consisting of simple symbols (line, point, circle), ‘destitute’ objects, organic matter and the physical elements (especially water). For the artist, space is an important tool and at the same time an object of reflection. The terseness of Kamoji’s artistic language, juxtaposed with the poetic and reflective nature of his works, brings to mind haiku poetry, derived from Zen Buddhism. Like haiku, Kamoji’s works combine a perfectly designed form with spiritual, metaphysical, and contemplative aspects.
