Sep. 27 (tue) – Oct. 5 (wed) 11:00 – 20:00 〈Entry Free〉
Venue Spiral Garden (Spiral 1F)
This is a new exhibition by Shuta Hasunuma, a musician who applies the techniques of musical composition to various media and continues to unveil works in a wide range of genres including video, sound, 3D, and installations.
In the world of Western music, music is viewed as consisting of the three components of melody, harmony, and rhythm. Taking rhythm as his theme for this exhibition, Hasunuma expands the concept of rhythm beyond the axis of time, and presents various temporal and spatial movements in the form of artistic works. There will also be a dance performance and talk session during the run of the exhibition.
