Exhibition Opening


Trish Clark Gallery is pleased to present Kazu Nakagawa’s third solo exhibition at the the gallery. The project artificial landscape takes 108 pieces of the native timber totara from a burnt house and Nakagawa’s painstaking and meditative hand carving fashions them into self enquiry: how to see contingency – what makes the boundaries of self and beyond? With this exhibition of new works, Kazu Nakagawa reminds us that his practice defies ready labelling, underpinned as it is by his fundamental philosophical positions, with his works emblematic of the Japanese concept of ‘ma’ – the space between, the distance between, the room between or around things. The extended duration of the contemplative process of hand-planing charred timbers during a period of global dislocations and individual solitude has brought to realization a body of work that meditates deeply, with both intensity and quietude, on the inherent imperfectability of life.
