Container with Hole

Date: 23rd May – 31st May 2023

会期:2023年5月23日 ~ 31日

Venue: FREYAalt


FREYAalt presents the solo exhibition Container with Hole by Kyohei Fujio!Hacking the way the containers are used and focusing on the spaces inside, the artist performs a series of performative readings and actions centering around waste, playfully provoking us to look inside these metal boxes, a semi-public space we use every day. Through urban interventions, a kind of peephole is opened for what we do not want to see through the same containers that are home to the concealed cycles of collecting, relocating, building and undoing. In his practice that exposes our double standards, for Fujio, every hole creates space for the next potential.The exhibition can be visited everyday between 23-31 May (except 28th of May), during the hours 14.00-20.00 and the opening will start at 17.00 on the 23rd.

*On the 31st of May, last day of the exhibition, we will host a participatory performance by the artist Kyohei Fujio. Details soon.

Once upon a time — exactly one hundred and fifty years ago, to be precise — Japan presented itself for the first time as one nation during Vienna’s World Exhibition. “Once Upon Now 1873-2023” (OUN) is a performative video and sound installation from the artist Johanna Riedl, based on this 150th anniversary. For this occasion, the installation “OUN” introduces a contemporary position that acts as a platform for intercultural exchange. As a pavilion of togetherness in Tokyo, the installation plays with different shades between cultures while working with speculation to blur the borders between the West and East in a globalized age.

むかしむかし、正確にはちょうど100と50年前、 日本パビリオンは初めてウィーン万国博覧会にて1つの国として登場しました。「Once Upon Now 1873-2023」(OUN) はアーティスト、ヨハンナ・リドルによる、この150周年をもとにしたパフォーマンスビデオ、およびサウンドインスタレーションです。 この機会に、インスタレーション「OUN」は異文化交流の場として現代的な立場を提示します。 このインスタレーションは、東京に位置する共生の場のパビリオンとして、グローバル時代における西洋と東洋の二元論を曖昧にするために「もしも」のシナリオを扱いながら、さまざまな文化色を奏でます。

Dérive feast / 漂流祝祭日

Hibiki Yamada (GAP M1 student) participates in the following exhibition.


New exhibition “Dérive feast” curated by waxogawa and Jingwen Li opens in the basement floor of Yokohama Civic Art Gallery.

The exhibition attempts to drift away from Tokyo where the centre of art scenes is located. Featuring young artists mostly, the exhibition proposes a possible feast days at Yokohama Civic Art Gallery, which is a public facility. In his book ‘A Movable feast’, Ernest Hemingway described the fast-changing challenges of literature arising from within the bustle of Paris. Paris as a rigid ground and the America as the birthplace of the White Cube… The vacillation between these two axes, as Hemingway mentioned, is mapped onto the Tokyo-Yokohama axes, among the collaboration with waxogawa and Li Jingwen.

we could leave Paris for a while (…) Maybe away from Paris I could write about Paris (…) “I remember everything. Sometimes he was right and sometimes you were right. I remember the lights and textures and the shapes you argued about.” (…) we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight. ーー E.Hemingway ‘A Moveable Feast’

しばらくパリを離れて別の場所で暮らすという手もある(…)パリを離れてもパリのことを書けるだろう、と私は思った。(…)「あなたたちが論じ合っていた光のことや、描写の肌理の細かさや粗さ、フォルムのこと、あたし、みんな覚えているわよ」(…)私たちはまだ若く、そこでは何一つ単純なものはなかったのである。たとえそれが貧困であれ、突然転がり込む金であれ、月の光であれ、善悪であれ、あるいは月光を浴びてかたわらに横たわっている女の息遣いであれ。 ――E. ヘミングウェイ『移動祝祭日』

COVEN – three jewellery artists of a new generation

Date/日付 25.03.2023 – 21.05.2023

Closed Dates/休館日 Mondays and Fridays

Venue Parkgata 21, 2317 Hamar, Norway

Participating Artists
Sayo Ota, Íris Elva Ólafsdóttir, and Kristine Ervik

Kristine Ervik, Iris Elva Olafsdottir and Sayo Ota, born in Norway, Iceland and Japan respectively, all studied metal and jewellery at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Together they mark a generational shift in Norwegian jewellery art by developing conceptual jewellery art. The exhibits comprise of temporary, transitory and eroding necklaces made from steel, seed, soap, silver, thread, enamel and Japanese lacquer. While using traditional techniques such as making chains from steel and silver, Japanese lacquering, and simple, nostalgic seeds of a string, they reject jewellery as functional objects. With this exhibition, Kunstbanken wishes to promote new arts and crafts curators and show parts of the extensive and varied repertoire by upcoming jewellery artists.
Curator: Olaf Tønnesland Hodne

Kristine Ervik、Iris Elva Olafsdottir、太田紗世は、それぞれノルウェー、アイスランド、日本で生まれ、オスロ国立芸術アカデミー、アーツアンドクラフト科のメタル&ジュエリーコースを卒業しています。 彼女たちの概念的なジュエリーアートを展開は、ノルウェーのジュエリーアートの世代交代の兆しを感じさせます。
新鋭の美術工芸のキュレーターや次世代のジュエリー アーティストによる広範で多様なレパートリーの一部を紹介する内容の展覧会をKunstbanken Center for Contemporary Artにて開催いたします。

The Aquarium / 水槽

Koki Fujinaka (GAP M2 student) will be performing a theatrical piece at the Bigakko graduation presentation.


“I like the atmosphere where the air stagnates, with high humidity. It feels soft, warm, blissful, and almost like dying. The pleasant smell of a futon. When thinking about delicate human relationships, I am always afraid of the way theater imposes various constraints on the audience and actors. Ordering to sit quietly in a chair, cutting off communication with the outside world. I used to think that was violent and feared it, but it seems that confronting each other face-to-face is not always the only correct way. We will perform a human relationship of tranquility and tension, bound in a closed space, based on the relationship between actors and the audience.”
Koki Fujinaka
