Page-a-Day Photo & Art Calendar Hope for 2020 mountain morning by INTERSECT BY LEXUS
03.12,2019 

The ground floor Garage at INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO hosts the exhibition “Page-a-Day Photo & Art Calendar” from November 20th.
Since it first opened in 2013, INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO has collaborated with a wide range of artists, introducing their work in its Lounge, Garage, and window spaces in ways customized to match the seasons and current events in the city. As we approach the landmark year that is 2020, INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO is partnering with various photographers and artists to create a page-a-day calendar, inspired by the theme of hope from the achievements of the venue until now and its future aspirations. For the exhibition, Garage transforms into an installation space featuring this special calendar.Around 20 artists are collaborating on the calendar, each creating a single page of the large calendar that captures their respective interpretations of the hopes of INTERSECT BY LEXUS.
Garage changes each day to match the new page of the calendar. The design of the space is by interior stylist Fumiko Sakuhara, who has handled styling for the Lounge at INTERSECT BY LEXUS ever since it opened in Tokyo and imaginatively used the ground floor window display to tell vivid seasonal stories. Her design for the Garage space works in close harmony with the artists’ calendar pages and will also reflect Christmas, New Year, and other seasonal events.

Exhibition by artist Yuji Mizuta at arflex Tokyo, November 28 to December 24

The LIFE with ART project proves the cosy relationship between art and interior design, and as part of this project, an exhibition by Yuji Mizuta will be held at arflex Tokyo in Ebisu.

Yuji Mizuta, in his shows in both Japan and overseas, expresses a detailed world without being tied down to specific methods, using various approaches including fine embroidery, line drawings, occasionally large-scale paintings, three-dimensional pieces employing fabric, and so on.

In this exhibition he presents his artworks alongside a collaboration on the marenco, an icon of arflex design.

Concept art for HOTEL KARAE   25.10.2019
佐賀県唐津市にオープンしたHOTEL KARAEへアートワークスを常設。

虹ノ松原の白砂青松がおりなす自然と、祭りや唐津焼などの伝統文化が息づく城下町、唐津。その玄関口となる場所にHOTEL KARAEは誕生しました。ラウンジアートやビッグテーブルは、かつてこの土地にあった、約100年前の酒蔵の建材や建具を蘇らせたもの。唐津の伝統文化を受け継ぎながら、このまちに新しい風を吹き込みたいという想いで作られました。

映画を観て唐津焼の窯元巡りをしたり、コワーキングスペースで働きながら、休日には松原を背にした海岸や唐津城を散歩したり…。

この場所が、唐津に滞在するそれぞれの人々にとっての、ポートになることを願っています。

Solo Exhibition  ” I have an incurable compulsion to ”

クリアギャラリートーキョーにて Solo Exhibition" I have an incurable compulsion to " を開催。

OPENING RECEPTION: July 19 Friday, 7pm - 9:30pm

EXHIBITION: July 19 - August 10, 2019
LOCATION: CLEAR GALLERY TOKYO 7-18-8/2F , Roppongi, Minato-ku,Tokyo

Working as a textile artist for over 20 years, Mizuta has developed his artistic practice through various techniques including pencil drawings, photography, and collage. His enduring fascination with textiles lies in the expressions they create and the roles they serve when employed in physical acts such as being worn or tied or used to wrap things up.
In Talisman, Mizuta embroidered English essays he wrote while studying at a language school atop photos taken around the same time. As a record of a particular place and time, the needle like a clock's hand, the embroidered essays include the artist's vocabulary and grammar errors, uncorrected.

In the main part of the exhibition, Mizuta depicts his fetishistic impulses using dyed cloth in the manner of a painter applying paint to canvas, layer by layer, resulting in an obsessive, quasi-religious paean from the artist to his beloved textiles.
Most artists use fabric, in the form of canvas, simply as the backdrop on which they produce their artworks. As you will see in this exhibition, however, Yuji Mizuta employs the fabric itself as an integral part of his art, in so doing creating new expressions in 2D.

I spent around six months living in England.

Now I offer up these pieces as talismans shaped by the experiences, surprises, discoveries, and self-discoveries I made, as well as the cultures, religions, and differences I encountered, during that April to September in England.

2018年4月。私は約半年間、イギリスに住んでいました。この作品は4月から9月までのイギリスの時間軸での経験、刺激、発見、文化、宗教、交流、相違、そして見直しの出来事を護符として、形に納めたく仕上げた作品です。
