There are many things in our everyday life we are casually spending that we cannot grasp unless we become aware. They are, for example, the flow of time, an existence which is blended into the surrounding space and goes unnoticed, others’ or the self’s feelings and imaginations, and the nature of things close to us. When looking at the world around us from a different viewpoint than usual, you will see unexpected changes and new aspects. In this exhibition, focusing on what we overlook unless we are aware, we introduce four artists who produce works that will shake our perceptions. By stepping into each world of their works, we feel the artist’s awareness as a clue to their production. When the artist’s views intersect with ours through the work, we begin to capture the world in a new perspective.
