Flatland: White Conduit Projects, London
Current and Forthcoming exhibitionGroup Exhibitions
Japanese flatness was famously influential on post-impressionist western art, and the modern Japanese ‘Superflat’ movement repurposes that tradition as a means of critiquing the shallow emptiness of consumer culture, so it makes particular sense that this is an Anglo-Japanese collaboration, bringing together artists from Europe and Japan. The title comes from the cult Victorian novel ‘Flatland’ by Edwin A. Abbott, which presents the possibilities of worlds in which there are one, two or four dimensions rather than three.
The curators are planning to exhibit work by Hannah Hughes, Michael Craig-Martin, Paul Noble, Sinta Werner, Malcolm Crocker, Glenn Brown, Andrea V Wright, Kate Groobey, Sinta Tantra, Miho Sato, Yuichiro Tamura, Yuuki Hourichi and some floating world prints. There will be inclusions for context (cd be postcard / book / print / model etc) by Van Gogh, Gaugin, Toulouse Lautrec, Takashi Murakami, Yoshimoto Nara.
