This exhibition explores different perceptions of space through the works of six media artists based in Japan and Hong Kong.

About

Ever since it first opened in 2001, Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS) has continued to collaborate with international artists, curators, arts centers, and cultural organizations to produce exhibitions and pioneer related programs. TOKAS Project, which began in 2018, aims to shine a contemplative light on the arts, society, and various other themes from a multicultural perspective. In its second year, TOKAS Project Vol. 2, the project will feature collaboration with the Hong Kong Arts Centre and Hong Kong-based curator IP Yuk-Yiu to introduce media art from both Japan and Hong Kong via FALSE SPACES, an exhibition that investigates not only geographical, physical spaces, but the spaces that appear in our imaginations as well.

Tokyo and Hong Kong both struggle with space issues. In both countries, urban centers must accommodate disproportionately large populations, resulting in buildings growing taller and taller and personal space becoming more and more constricted within public spaces. The concept of “space” itself is open to a wide range of interpretations, spanning from the physical spaces of geography and location to the conceptual spaces of the personal and psychological realms, and even cyberspace. Furthermore, artists construct spaces, in the form of art, which differ from those of the real world in a pursuit to express their own world views. This exhibition explores different perceptions of space through the works of six media artists based in Japan and Hong Kong.
