GARDEN OF SOLID SUBTLENESS » 18:00

Garden of solid subtleness

Hidden at the basement of workspacebrussels, lies Kosi Hidama’s atelier. Researching different types of glazed ceramics, Kosi occupied the space over the past few years and developed his practice of pottery. Slowly his work started invading all the other spaces of the building.
 
Traditional Japanese ceramics and the culture of tea ceremonies are at the heart of this work. Unlike many Western art forms, Kosi’s pottery unites usefulness and beauty. As nature creates beautiful things that serve a clear purpose, so practical household items are elevated to works of art. Yet nature can also be chaotic or wasteful. This paradox of the natural world continues to inspire his work as a potter.
 
During the festival he will create a landscape with the ceramics he produced at his basement atelier. Combining this with subtle sounds that will be produced autonomously in the setting, and having even the audience participate in the process, he thinks of this work as an interior-garden-with-sound-installation-performance.
 
Garden of solid subtleness will be the seventh in his series of interior gardens. Earlier this year Kosi presented his winter garden Shiro at CC Strombeek. This time he invited his friend Misha Downey, to work with him on a summer garden.
