Erskine, Hall & Coe is pleased to present Membrane, the first European exhibition of lacquer artworks by Japanese artist, Genta Ishizuka.  The exhibition will comprise 21 works and will be viewable from the 21st of February through the 22nd of March 2018.

Born in Kyoto in 1982, Ishizuka currently lives and works in Kyoto City.  He earned a BFA from Kyoto City University of Arts, during which time he participated in an exchange program at the Royal College of Art, London in 2006.  Most recently, he graduated with a MFA in Urushi Lacquering from Kyoto City University of Arts in 2008.

Speaking of the meaning behind the title of his exhibition, Ishizuka explains

I believe “membrane” is a word that is connected to both my production method that utilizes elastic cloth, as well as the sense of envelopment given by applying the urushi, in the way it covers the whole work like a skin. This word that is used with animals, plants and other organisms also has an affinity with the organic material of urushi, and can mean a kind of skin, connoting physicality.

Ishizuka’s work has received international recognition and awards, and is included in the permanent collections of the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.  

The show will be fully illustrated on our website on the day it opens, will be viewable Tuesday - Saturday, 10:00 - 18:00 and will be free to attend.
