Kaori Watanabe Solo Exhibiiton
“I want to hold your hand”

1 Nov.Fri.- 22 Nov.Fri.2019

Imura Art Gallery is pleased to announce the solo exhibition “I want to hold your hand” by Nihonga artist Kaori Watanabe. Since obtaining her Master of Fine Arts from Kyoto Saga University of Arts, Kaori Watanabe (born 1984 in Shizuoka Prefecture) has been a prolific artist, participating in many art exhibitions. From 2009, she has also been involved in the restoration of important cultural assets and national treasures throughout the world, and she reflects in her own work the techniques and knowledge of classical paintings that she has gained while surveying and conserving art and producing replicas for donation. Using as the main motif human subjects meticulously rendered through well-crafted line drawings on silk canvases, the world view of Watanabe that is constructed from the artist’s modern-day life presents us with new possibilities, while at the same time doing a wonderful job of carrying on the classical painting tradition.

The exhibition title, “I want to hold your hand,” reflects the artist’s wish to create new visual imagery about gender and culture, sewn together as if holding hands, based on Watanabe’s personal creative theme of all-inclusiveness. The exhibition provides an opportunity to view the fruits of Kaori Watanabe’s tireless efforts producing contemporary Nihonga.

My hope is that people view the works in this solo exhibition as a storyboard for a fictional cult movie. A storyboard illustrates the main scenes in a visual work, such as a movie. It is created to allow staff to gain a shared understanding of the visuals and worldview of the work. There are many movies in the world that were never completed, and there is something particularly fascinating about film projects that are suddenly stopped halfway through, with storyboards left abandoned,

like Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Dune. for example. Being unfinished, they are unrestrained by limitations in the vast realm of the imagination. I would like viewers to connect each individual scene, enjoying the unique aspect of this image storyboard with which you experience disorientation as you try to connect fragmentary scenes that do not necessarily have a continuation, unlike a regular storyboard. It is also fun to establish a backstory that this ‘movie project’ suddenly died because of too much absurdity and problems̶a soaring budget, a director who has gone missing, accidents with actors, and a string of illnesses.
