rosenfeld porcini is proud to present Sound and Vision, an exhibition by emerging artists Bongsu Park and Keita Miyazaki. The gallery will showcase new sound sculptures by Miyazaki on the ground floor and video works by Park on the lower level.
Park’s starting point is to look at herself and her relationship to other people, her need for company yet also solitude. Her pieces are born out of this quandary: The continual oscillation between the joining and separation of human relationships. Park has created, for the first time, a piece with three dancers, CELL in which she experiments with perspectives and display. CORE, which is also inaugurated in the exhibition, concerns an individual’s dialogue with sculptural form.
Miyazaki’s sculptures are quite different to Park’s videos as they arise out of an observation of the exterior world. After witnessing the tragedy of the tsunami, the artist felt the need to create a new ‘utopian’ vision out of the ashes of the ‘dystopia’ in Japan. He wanted to create artworks out of the rubble, sculptures, which would point forward to a new beginning. Miyazaki’s works, which marry traditional Japanese origami and sound with parts of old car engines, create a completely new visual universe.
