A solo exhibition ‘Metamorphosis’ by Japanese female artist Sanae Takahata.


The solo exhibition Metamorphosis by Japanese artist Sanae Takahata features a large installation of dress-shaped painted sculptures accompanied by paintings. This exhibition is complemented by a curatorial project entitled Medieval Garden, presented at a.m. space in the Central district.

Sanae Takahata’s latest series renders into shapes and images her deeply personal and powerful experience of the illness and loss of a close friend. Through fluid shapes, vibrant colors and elaborate patterns, the artworks deal with the journeys and flows between the material and spiritual realms, and between figuration and abstraction. Great attention was paid to the display and sequence of the artworks to respect the artist’s wish to follow her friend’s life journey. The installation and lighting aims at surrounding visitors with a feeling of freshness and lightness, as if an ocean breeze was circulating within the bright space.

The Metamorphosis series was presented in a solo exhibition part of the program of the Yokohama Triennale 2014, and is showcased for the first time outside Japan.
