Ceramic / Kouichi Uchida (1969 ~)  

SIMPLE FORMS  Simple form


Stand as it is

When I moved to this place, I started with an exhibition by Mr. Koichi Uchida.

At that time, when I saw the simple pottery of unnamed craftsmen at the Metropolitan Museum in NY, I wondered what kind of world Koichi Uchida would show ... I was excited.

Ten years have passed since then, and once again, Mr. Uchida's desire to have a dialogue with the soil and to make things that return to the starting point has come true. This time, not only pottery, but also works that transcend the categories of materials such as objects and paintings will appear, and the "simple shape" that the artist himself has seen and felt in time, and such accumulation appears. This is an exhibition entitled. We hope that you can experience the space created by a rare artist with a powerful and simple work.
