Hideki IINUMA

Roulette

gallery UG Tennoz

gallery UG Tennoz is excited to announce "Roulette," a solo exhibition by Hideki IINUMA, running from Friday, June 7, to Saturday, June 22.
IINUMA's sculptures, carved from single trees, feature a rough exterior that retains the wood's bark, reflecting the essence of contemporary women living in a consumer society. Iinuma often photographs her sculptures in real-world settings, such as urban streets and natural landscapes. This dynamic combination of sculpture and background creates a fresh and diverse visual experience, stimulating the viewer's imagination and revealing new dimensions of the sculptures.
It has been two years since IINUMA participated in a group exhibition at gallery UG in 2022. This highly anticipated event marks his first solo exhibition at the gallery.
We look forward to welcoming you.

The small buildings and flowers at the center of my work represent my alter ego. The surrounding fields signify the passage of time. Buildings rise on an empty field, only to return to open land once more. By placing my alter ego at the heart of these transformations, I express my own "territory."

Through my art, I aim to give form to the landmarks that exist in the spaces between changing elements

In the lush green mountains, the sounds, smells, and signs that I experience while creating my work make me imagine the lives of creatures burrowed away. Similarly, casual conversations and everyday encounters are filled with small discoveries that move me.

When these imaginings and discoveries blend, a story forms in my mind, bringing many characters to life. I capture their vague images on paper, then shape them with clay, add layers of color, and bake them over and over again.
They emerge into the real world with expressions of sealed intentions, gently curving surfaces, and unchanging colors and textures. Watching them gradually appear before my eyes, after existing only in my mind, fills me with joy and excitement.


I hope you can imagine the continuation of their story from their appearance, as if they are quietly plotting something.
