“Practice sessions to look for my love of bi-jutsu once again”
Yamashita Shiori creates artworks based on issues in art education in Japan. The exhibition “Preparatory Exercise to Fall in Love with Art Again” will be held at Tsurumicho Lab. in March 2022.
Yamashita, born in Osaka in 1997, has loved drawing since she was a child and chose to study art in high school. She failed to pass an entrance examination directly on graduation from high school once, but she got into the university’s art department the following year. However, a frustrating experience in her second year of undergraduate school led to a growing sense of discomfort with art. Since then, she has been presenting works on the challenges of art education and sublimating her awareness of it.
This exhibition will present new works focusing on the physical exercise she has undergone in art education and its teaching methods.
This project will share the artist’s trial-and-error process of trying to recapture the relationship with art that she once loved. It may also allow viewers to reencounter perhaps what they may have once loved.
The exhibition will run from Thursday, March 17, to March 31, 2022. The show will be closed on Tuesday, March 22, and Monday, March 28, 2022.
We look forward to seeing you there.
