20-27 July 2013@ Youkobo Art Space, Tokyo Japan
During her residency at Youkobo, Shih Yun will be exploring the unusual means of art making using toy robots. She will be employing these little "machines" that inform the creative process by replacing the personal touch or signature stroke with a mechanical means. The artist will find a unique mark through her particular process and her selection and editing further personalizes the work, making a collaboration between "machine"(toy robot) and "man"(artist).
Justin Lee's works bring a different understanding of today’s society and lifestyle with a blend of east and west cultures. Justin also seeks to record everyday lifestyles into visual art based on his cultural experience and surroundings by doubting and questioning appearances. He believes that art plays an important part in helping people to grow, while it also plays the important role of bringing about greater self-awareness. His current residency will reflect on how nature is being controlled and constructed by humans in our daily lives. His works also reflect upon how words, objects and images control and construct our thoughts and expression.
This exhibition will feature works they create during this residency. See you !
