From 9 November 2019 to 1 March 2020 MOSTYN is hosting a major exhibition of the work of the internationally acclaimed Japanese artist, Nobuko Tsuchiya. This new body of work is showing for the first time in Wales.
Working primarily with sculpture, Tsuchiya’s practice uses a wide range of materials, often including household objects, collected over time, which she assembles and casts to create amorphous, hybrid minimalist mechanical objects. Presented across the gallery floor, the works enter into dialogue with one another, creating arresting and poetic installations.
Through a careful shift in scale from the minute to the momentous, Tsuchiya’s installations engage with the viewer’s relationship to space. Her sculptures are in constant transmutation; they are repositories of memory and experience, signifiers of past, present and future imaginaries, hovering and shifting through time and space.
Alongside the exhibition will be a series of related public engagement activities.
