About the event
Since 2020, life has been a constant cycle of stop and go. “Just For Now”, organized by Keiko Hatano, has been a project held hostage by pandemic limbo. Originally intended for a different space, a lapse in communication kept the show at a standstill for one year, only for Hatano to find that the original plans were forgotten, and under new circumstances, no longer feasible.
Artist’s lives are precarious - to be a maker is to accept the fragility of life and ephemeral nature of artwork. Just For Now catches artists where they are, right at this moment, in mutual understanding that they, along with their art practices, will continuously evolve until the last breath. An artist’s evolution is indicative of a constant death, which parallels our whiplash years in lockdown and reopening. The participating artists, whos mediums and subject matter vary, have continued to make work despite the seemingly never ending chaos of our contemporary times. Tied together through a thread of collective transformation, these new works present the conflict of metamorphosis and the simultaneous simplicity of now.
The show features recent works by Yumiko Glover, Jun Funahashi, Chiho Ushio, May Izumi, Maile Yawata, Keiko Hatano, and Ayaka Takao. On view in fishcake’s showroom based in kakaako from January 26, 2023 til April 1, 2023.
