Mamoru Sakagawa Retrospective

The Tokyo branch of the Kodama Gallery is now showing the last nine years of Mamoru Sakagawa’s work. The objects range from the 2001 acrylics of muscle men, to drawings, to the latest experiments with india ink and fabric appliqué. The oldest works, interestingly enough, suggest a loosely visceral quality in the artist’s approach: it is as if even when the actual anatomical visualization disappeared, the physicality transferred into the very process of looking.
