About Hales Gallery is pleased to announce Japanese artist Tomoko Takahashi's second solo show at the gallery. Takahashi will make a new installation in the gallery space over a 10 day period preceding the show. As with her installations, Takahashi starts with a set of rules that structure the overall composition. For this show the challenge is not to buy any of the objects that will be part of the work, relying on materials that she has hoarded over time. Her thoughts for this show are scrawled on the announcement card and have become a replacement for the regular pattern. For this exhibition Takahashi has divided the gallery into two separate rooms and has also split the works for sale and the installed piece.
