Masaho Anotani
LINALSASI

Jan 11, 2024 | Event 

 exhibiton-anotani-1

 

We are pleased to present Masaho Anotani’s solo exhibition,”LINALSASI”. Anotani’s work stems from his daily activities and social encounters, along with the sensations he gains from nature. His artistic expressions are the instantaneous reactions that emerge from these moments. He has presented his work in various forms, including painting, drawing, collage, performance, poetry, and photography. The title of this exhibition, “LINALSASI,” is a quotation of the characters that were conjured up by the imagination of Anotani’s son. It was an accidental and undecipherable string of letters but Anotani saw it as a message, an irreplaceable path of light, laying the foundation for his new work.

Anotani’s drawings and collaborations with COSMIC WONDER’s “THAT OLD MAGIC” and “North Village Light” collections will be exhibited and available for sale.

We look forward to your visit.

  For a very long time I’ve been pickpocketing very short bits of film. I look for shots that are a bit free-floating, slightly disconnected from the rest of the story, what one calls ‘cutaway’ shots. That’s what they are asking for, to be cut out, set loose. And now that I have lots and lots of them, it’s interesting to see how they behave with one another. One can splice them together in any number of ways and find that they are quite expressive.
