Koji Kamoji "Silence and the will to live."

The exhibition in Zachęta is the first retrospective presentation of the rich achievements of a Japanese artist, for years 60. living and working in Poland. It will contain paintings, drawings, installations, spatial objects - minimalist and ascetic works, abstract compositions.

Over the years, carefully selecting the material of his works, Kamoji has developed a catalog of favorite and important motifs, which consist of simple symbols (line, point, circle), "poor" items, organic matter or elements (especially water). An important tool and the object of reflection is the space for the artist. The vividness of Kamoji's artistic language, combined with the poetics and reflexivity of his works, brings to mind the haiku poems that grew out of Zen Buddhism. Kamoi's works, like haiku, combine a perfectly designed form with a spiritual, metaphysical and contemplative aspect.

Koji Kamoji. Silence and the Will to Live
exhibition opening: 15 June 2018, 7 pm
duration of the exhibition: 16.06-19.08.2018

This will be the first retrospective artist Koji Kamoji, who has been working and working in Poland since the 1960s. It comprises paintings, drawings, installations, spatial objects (including minimalist and ascetic works), as well as abstract. Over the years, Kamoji has developed a catalog of his favorite and most important motifs. The exhibition will reveal the artist's personal imaginarium, elements of simple symbols (line, point, circle), 'destitute' objects, organic matter and the physical elements (especially water). For the artist, space is an important tool. The terseness of Kamoji's artistic language, juxtaposed with the poetic and reflective nature of his works, bring to mind haiku poetry, derived from Zen Buddhism. Like haiku, Kamoji's works combine a perfectly designed form with spiritual, metaphysical, and contemplative aspects.
