We hope that you will be able to attend our exciting new exhibition, "Days and Subtleties" by Takashi NAKAJIMA.

Looking back on my life, I find myself always worrying about other people while accepting it with a defiant attitude, perhaps as a defensive response to protect my sensitivity since childhood. However, it has also helped my attention to the relationship between "self" and "others," as well as "private" and "public", and probably guided me to art as expressing one's thought and personality.

Everyday life is full of diverse relations happening between people, things, places and various affairs, and the inexhaustible relationship is always eluding even in a twinkling, let alone grasping all of them.

To capture the ephemeral nature of daily life, I explore the possibility of stretch film through my work. Very thin but tough and elastic, the ordinary mass-produced material appears interesting with its transparency, smooth grain, and light reflection running on the surface. I'm expressing myself through this unique medium to slightly magnify small "hooks" we would find in everyday life.
