This event has ended.

New Incubation is a series of exhibitions which provide an opportunity for veteran and young artists to meet and stimulate each other. This exhibition project is organized with the aim to grasp contemporary art from new perspectives through the dynamics which spring from such combinations, which also creates a challenging place for both artists and viewers. In the 7th New Incubation, two video artists working on a wide range of activities, Eugene Kangawa and Pierre Jean Giloux exhibit their video works which represent contemporary landscapes from each point of view.
There is a stark contrast in the works of these 2 artists. Kangawa looks at the world objectively, and gains a degree of perfection of his work by “minimal intervention” such as making a mere scenario or setting. On the other hand, Pierre Jean recreates the real world by “maximal intervention”; computer graphics or digital processing. His imagination, humour, and fascination deconstruct the reality and give way to a fictional reconstruction. In this exhibition, these two artists show their works which alternate the world based on the research of the memory of a community.
Their ways to see, understand, and reconstruct the world are contrastive, however, they have a peculiar relationship in terms of the real and the fictional, namely “the inverse affinity”. Eugene’s work depicts and elaborates natural scenery with even more intense reality than the actual world, which, in conclusion, comes to approximate rather fictional scenery. Pierre Jean creates a fictional city with CG techniques, which seems to illustrate the mysterious image of a city organically transfiguring like a creature. Both of their works show spectacles arousing the imaginations of viewers, which function as omens and counter images to this contemporary world.
