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

In this extensive conversation between Christian Larsen and photographer Vincent Fournier, we learn about the aesthetics and interests behind ‘Brasília, A Time Capsule’, a series which investigates the architecture, landscape, and people of Brasília (Brazil).

Collaborator of our sister gallery Spazio Nobile, Matthias Kohn, developed a project about home, nature, and hospitality. In essence, the concept is based on the idea of placing furniture, most often used in private interior settings, thus adapted for this type of use, and suggesting comfort, in exterior settings, where the impact of the piece on the respective surroundings is allowed to develop fully.
