    哲学的で独創的な作風が、ART BASEL Hong Kong 2018 や TAIPEI DANGDAI 2020 など、海外を中心に高い評価を受けているヴィデオ・アーティスト、河合政之の個展。当展覧会では、カオスとコスモスの融合を意味する《カオスモス》というテーマのもと、近年河合が取り組んできたアナログな映像機材を用いた〈ヴィデオ・フィードバック〉による作品シリーズを展示します。

    Masayuki Kawai creates video works in a unique and philosophical style that is gaining reputation abroad in such settings as ART BASEL Hong Kong 2018 and TAIPEI DANGDAI 2020 in recent years. In this solo exhibition, under the theme of CHAOSMOS - the fusion of chaos and cosmos - we exhibit an exemplary series of his works that use ‘video feedback’ created by analog devices. 


    Kawai, also a theorist, understands the ‘analog’ as the essence of video which is subject to every chance and change, opposing it to the digital which formulaically utilizes signal while excluding noise. Each of Kawai’s works, by using analog circuits, is a kind of living system, changing infinitely and never repeating an instant. They elicit the pleasure of eternally mutating images that appear as cosmos in the finite world yet are open to infinite chaos: chaosmos.
