Yohei Okada

Yohei Okada, Warped, at Art LAB's Over The Border, at Ai Kowada.

Not sure what the space is really... It's like the Ai Kowada project space, within Ai Kowada... but maybe run by another entity, there is no mention of it on the Ai Kowada site.

The souvenir spoons are Uri Geller portraits. I thought they were Dali maybe, but there is no moustache.

Warped Uri Geller records... they still play... but the sound is distorted.

Geller with Dali.

Haha okay.


All of these are pics of Uri Geller with other people, in which Okada has substituted his own face.

It's an illusion!

Kohei Kajihara

Kohei Kajihara, at Kodama Gallery.

Okay it's actually a four-person show, but my attention was mostly on the Kajiharas. That is Kohei Kajihara on the floor studying the sculpture by Masakazu Takatori.

Kohei Kajihara... he did the green weirdo... the other painting is by Akira Takaishi, also good... but all my pics are Kajiharas which were my faves.

Real Wine in Real Glasses! Very nice small building with a gallery on each of four floors... coordinated openings... wow so nice and easy for Tokyo. Refreshing.

The contemporary art galleries in the building are Kodama, Yamamoto Gendai, and Arataniurano.

Kodama Gallery... the Director? I will try to get his name and add it.

Yuko Murata

Yuko Murata, at Gallery Side 2.

she is making 'stones' too. there is one on the floor.
a drawing/painting... not really 'in' the show... the moon reflected on the water - or snow? - is glittery.

Evan Nesbit

Evan Nesbit, Jestorial, at Motus Fort.

Wish I had taken better pics of that green ironing board... the top is like 'pegs' of paint made from smooshing it through all the holes... the underside is all smooshed paint.

Jeffrey Chiedo is Motus Fort.
