The group show was organised by CPUE (Curatorial Practice in Urban Environment) run by Yuko Hasegawa. The space is designed to carefully intervene the original triangle-shape empty space located in central Tokyo. A light diffusion sheet, holographic films and faceted mirrors are arranged to trap and release the effects of light, both natural and artificial, according to the condition. A sound-activated lighting array by Takayuki Fujimoto coexist with the sunlight brought in through big exterior windows. The title of the show points to the Japanese feeling of utsuroi, or poetically changing, and the carefully curated pieces pair with our installation to subtly define the gallery space itself as an ever-changing environment.
