This is a group exhibition organized by Taketo Kobayashi (Graduate of Tama Art University's Painting Department) in which he has gathered 5 artists around the relation of "not close but not far". Furthermore the free talk of the artists which will take place every Saturday and Sunday from 16:00 will be documented and presented within the exhibition space, in which there will be daily new developments.
This exhibition is not just a mere group exhibition, but has been devised through an approach of "neither near nor far", undertaken in the repeated measurement of distance.
Here the language of each artist exists in parallel multiplicity both within and outside of the work, in a state of repeated change which eludes systematic self-containment. In addition to the exhibition of work, the dialogue between artists will construct yet another circuit of this event.
At specific times throughout the exhibition, the artists (in various groups) will hold an "on time free talk" in the exhibition space. The contents of which will be recorded, then upon the next session the artists will undertake a new broadcast, while listening to this previous recording. Each sound recording of this discussion will be played in the space itself, building up layers of voices over time.
Through the work itself, documentation and on time talk sessions, the language of each artist will come into contradict and rift, layering upon each day, in a continuous renewal. Inputting phenomenon as neutrally as possible (neither near nor far), repeatedly updating in a method of taking every moment and the flow of "now" side by side.
