For the 44th running of the 3331 ART FAIR recommended artists special exhibition, we happily present the solo exhibition, "Undiscovered Asteroids Observatory", by Miya Kaneko. After coming across the question, "what is a city?", Miya Kaneko started creating projects and artworks that actualize the appearance of non-visible cities by building installations out of industrial materials, and tracing participants' memories and experiences through workshops. Participants share their own memories and images of the city through their interactions with Kaneko, from where she carves out the names of places and actual memories on the surface of the artwork - all while remaining completely unbound from real geography. Eventually, the process results in an entirely new portrait of the city appearing before your very eyes.
For this exhibition, Miya Kaneko will publicly display her creative practice within the gallery space throughout the duration of the exhibition. Visitors will talk directly with the artist by telephone, from which conversations will serve as a base for imagining a map, which will be drawn into an "undiscovered asteroids observatory" within the gallery. Moreover, we will be holding events relating to the exhibition, including a discussion with the anthropologist/designer, Yutaka Nakamura, as well as a closing talk by Miya Kaneko as she presents her artwork completed during the exhibition period. We warmly invite you to come join the artist in this interactive exhibition.

Artist's statement
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The slightest memories of places, which would surely be forgotten unless shared with someone, in fact, must be the important elements that constitute a city.
At the same time, the point that these memories are unreachable by anyone, can be likened to an undiscovered asteroids observatory - existing, but not visible to our eyes.
In this work, while listening to the memories someone shares with me, I will attempt to conjure thoughts surrounding the image of a city that floats ahead of us lightyears away.

Miya Kaneko grapples with maps. This is the impression I got a while ago. At the time, she had engraved names of locations on a big aluminum plate, confronting the issues surrounding cities and memories that lay behind maps ("Wishing for a City through a Map" "The City Within", 2015.) Some things are difficult to put on a map. Like sounds and smells, and individual memories. Kaneko resisted this oblivion, and it looked to me, as if she were screaming to try and build a new map. After that, Kaneko's artworks developed even further. Encountering the maps of memories shared with her by others, she began to no longer comprehend cities. However, in learning and taking apart "what she knew", she leapt gracefully, weaving together her expressions, as if tossing away the map altogether ("Please Imagine a Non-Visible City" 2018, and other works.) I am envious of Kaneko, who brings to life unseen maps, having learned how to play with and get sucked into the voices she encounters.
