It runs from May 13th to June 7th, 2014.
We are showing a solo exhibition by Fujiyasu Jun first and a group show of Fujiyasu, Fukuta Masakazu and Uyama Toshinori. Fukuta and Uyama became members of this group this year.

Artist statement

I have asked myself several questions over and over, since I was born about being a twin.
One is whether I should feel like a twin consciously.
The second is how I should confront my fear the people will mistake me for my brother. The last question is how I can establish my own identity in an environment where some people often compare me with my twin.

I wonder how other twins confront these problems.
I thought I would like to find out part of the answer to these problems.
And also I thought that I would like to understand more about all human being through the filter of “twins”.
