Hitoshi Nomura, Fergus McCaffrey
Post-War Japanese art expert Fergus McCaffrey gallery opens the season with a Hitoshi Nomura retrospective. Relentlessly investigating the interplay between art and science, the multidisciplinary sculptor, photographer has explored how time and space can effect the nature of matter since the late 1960s. Pieces like Tardiology (1968-69) and Dry Ice (1969) reconceptualise different media by capturing dematerialisation and the passage of time. Addressing planetary motion since the 1970s, Nomura’s oeuvre responds to the cyclical patterns and universal rhythms; it goes beyond the visual representation. However, technique matches concept.
Hitoshi Nomura runs till 24 October at Fergus McCaffrey: 514 West 26th Street, New York
