Only in Perth – Celebrated Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara’s first Australian solo exhibition brings together major sculptural works alongside paintings, drawings, ceramics, and photography. Spanning 2011-2022, the exhibition focuses on key works from Nara’s recent output.
Dramatically presented in AGWA’s largest gallery space, the sculptural works form a series of interrelated islands that span a range of feeling states. Individually and collectively, they demonstrate Nara’s unsurpassed ability to convey emotional nuance with clarity and moving intensity. The feeling of these works is echoed by surrounding drawings, paintings and ceramics in Nara’s distinctive style.
