White Rainbow is proud to announce My eyes are not in the centre, an expansive new installation by Taro Izumi. This will be the artist’s first UK solo exhibition.
Based in Tokyo, Izumi (b. 1976, Nara, Japan) is one of Japan’s leading artists working with multimedia and collaborative practice. Izumi’s large structural works are often made up of simple, familiar objects, constructed in such as way as to transform the everyday into the absurd. His playful, almost childlike works often conceal undertones of dark humour and irony which exist in our daily life.
Izumi uses video as a recursive apparatus for exploring the mechanisms of art making, while also commenting on the materiality of video by combining it with structural and architectural interventions into the exhibition space. Made with disarmingly simple materials, these structures are often used in the production of the videos, creating a recursive loop between space and video, production and reception, recorded time and real time.
