Motohiro Tomii: Sculptures
If you take step from Kanazawa’s shopping district into a quiet wooden house-lined street, you’ll find a pristine-looking noticeboard. Look closer and you won’t see information regarding garbage collection days or news from the local residents’ association, but a carefully created artistic composition. “Keijiban” (meaning noticeboard in Japanese) is an art project launched in 2021 by Olivier Mignon, one of the founding members of the Belgian art platform (SIC). Multiples, prints, and original art pieces from artists around the world are displayed in the noticeboard for a fixed period of time, and then once the display period is over, they are then put up for sale on the online shop. The current display which is available to view until 14 June is a playful composition by the artist Nathalie Du Pasquier. She uses the limited depth available to skillfully create a dynamic piece that brings to mind a paper collage, stacked wood, or bricks. It’s almost as if you’re looking at wallpaper from across the glass.
