Gallery Yamaki Fine Art is pleased to present Memory and the Passage of Time, a two-person exhibition by Yuki Hayashi and Benoît Broisat.
A visual artist, Hayashi (1976-) is based in Kyoto, who makes imaginary films with fragments of images he photographed. Broisat (1980-) is a French artist based in Paris. He depicts imagery of his own memories, adopting various mediums, such as drawing, photography, digital animation, and rubber-stamping.
This show features the latest works by these two up-and-coming artists working with highly developed digital technology. They create works that examine memory and its mechanisms generated by video, and photography. The physical sensations and emotions evoked by digital technology are the central subject matter of their work and a way of rediscovering the world. By contrasting clouds, which constantly change their shapes, with images locked in never-melting ice, Hayashi explores the nature of media and the passage of time. Drawing the audience into the world of his own personal memories, Broisat intends to conjure individual memories for each viewer through analog objects. The virtual intermediate realm produced through the medium of digital technology, where the physical world and the invisible world of thought are blended, could be a device that offers the audience a new way of seeing the world.
We hope you will take a look at the expressions of these two artists, who resonate with each other over the theme of forms of memory.
Exhibiting Artists: Yuki HAYASHI, and Benoît BROISAT
* This will be the first exhibition at Gallery Yamaki Fine Art in four years for Hayashi and five years for Broisat.
