Kyota Takahashi: Modality of Light
December 2022 – January 2023
Artist: Kyota Takahashi
ACG Villa Kyoto is proud to present Kyota Takahashi in our eleventh special exhibition.
Takahashi creates numerous site-specific, large-scale installations in which he projects images and light onto structures and scenery. This time, Takahashi uses the smallest spatial unit of human activity, the “home,” to weave a narrative that quietly shakes the viewer’s senses.
The viewing room of ACG Villa Kyoto, which ARTCOURT Gallery opened in 2018, is built in the Sukiya-zukuri* style (a registered tangible cultural property). It was built in 1934 and designed by Koji Fujii, who implements environmental engineering-based thinking and Japanese aesthetic sensibilities in his residential architectural designs.
Koji Fujii is an architect who connects spatial interiors and exteriors with air and light, and Kyota Takahashi is an artist who has perfect command of the light he manipulates. Sunlight filters through the trees, the sound of the wind, the quietness after nightfall… During this season, when the daylight is at its shortest, we welcome you to experience this world where light interplays with the shadows of the villa that wax and wane moment by moment.
Prior reservations are required for all visits (at least two days before).
