Masaomi Yasunaga: Looking Afar / 遠くを見る
New York, 8 September – 15 October 2022
For his first exhibition in New York, the sculptor Masaomi Yasunaga presents a large body of new, experimental ceramic works. The gallery space features over 50 avant-garde vessel forms, including his largest to date, displayed on beds of gravel and flanked by structures fastened to the walls. Yasunaga’s unique practice and outright omission of clay offer a re-evaluation of ceramic tradition and reposition the works beyond ceramics to constructions that encompass sculpture, installation and even performance. Looking Afar explores the artist’s unprecedented process and the sentimentality that guides it.Read more
In advance of his exhibition, Masaomi Yasunaga invites us into his studio in Iga-shi, Japan to see his innovative process and labour-intensive methods.
