Mild steel sculptures that contrast industrial impersonality with the simulated softness and intimate warmth of bedding materials – this exhibition examines the paradoxical works of Japanese-born, Canberra-resident, Kensuke Todo. Born in Kyoto, educated in Japan and Australia, Todo extends his bi-cultural perspective to sculptures and drawings that gesture towards imaginary architecture, with rigorously considered in-between spaces that function ambivalently as voids and energy fields.
The exhibition has been curated by Peter Haynes.
Exhibition dates 23 May – 29 June 2014
