Spot The Difference (2019) by Ryoko Akama
23rd October – 31st December
ame’s new space Sho Hall presents spot the different (2019), Akama’s solo exhibition that will change and continue a display for a durational period of time. The show results from her daily observation of time and her interest in mundane facts of objects such as weigh, shape, pattern, colour or elasticity in relation to gravity, light or temperature.
She collects ‘things’, but not everything. Born in Japan between Korean father and Japanese mother, living in the UK over 18 years within which in Huddersfield for 8 years, she is simply intrigued by how and why some objects attract her more than others, how a daily life and upbringing background may change such aesthetics of choices.
This humorous and intense sculpture continues to evolve into another in the course of time.
