“Tetsuya Noguchi solo exhibition-THIS IS NOT A SAMURAI” will be hold at Takamatsu Art Museum（Kagawa） from Feb. 6 to Mar. 21, 2021.
Tetsuya Noguchi is a contemporary artist who questions modernity and humanity through the theme of armour and people. In his works, he presents rather realistic images of unadorned people. They may seem in juxtaposition with the traditional image of an armour at first, given that they show people who are: motionless, wearing suits of armour, relaxing, in distress, wearing trendy sneakers, or naturally wearing armour with a brand logo on it. His unique worldview, in which diverse cultures and emotions blend together, is supported by a wide range of people both in Japan and abroad.
This exhibition consists of approximately 180 representative works from his early years, as well as new works, including sculptures, paintings, and installations depicting people wearing armour, and introduces the world of kindness, sadness, and curiosity about human beings, filtered through Tetsuya Noguchi’s broad thinking and elaborate works.
