Press｜Tomokazu Matsuyama's first solo exhibition in Long Museum West Bund - 'Accountable Nature'
KOTARO NUKAGA is pleased to present Accountable Nature, Tomokazu Matsuyama’s first solo exhibition in Mainland China, at Long Museum West Bund from November 12, 2020 to January 24, 2021. The works in the exhibition feature Matsuyama’s extensive range of aesthetic language, from his iconic shaped canvases to sculpture.
The exhibition title, Accountable Nature, derives from the technical term force majeure, which references natural disasters and unexpected events that are a detriment to the functioning of society and the economy. Usually, when a stable relationship is established between nature and humans, people can enjoy the blessings of nature. However, the occasional rage of nature shakes up this interconnection, causing people to become helpless and even surrender. No one is accountable for any damages caused by the force of nature; even if people would feel unjust. Despite living in times of uncertainty, what Matsuyama has seen in the present is the power of the people continuing to live day by day, maintaining hope for the future and reconstructing their lives.
