The Age of Disappearance, atwo-person exhibiton by #Japanese artsts, Satoru Aoyama and Ken Ikeda, an embroiderer and a musician respectvely, will be on view at Mizuma Gallery (@mizumagallery) in Singapore, from 1 July - 6 August. “Traditons, bodies, disaster, war, documentary media - it goes without saying that this is an age in which each of those is itself confronted with many diferent disappearances, but within that, I think the noton of what the nature of “art” will be in the future is very important.” – Satoru Aoyama
