The Daiwa Foundation and APT Institute present Acting out of Nothingness

Daiwa Foundation Japan House , 09/17/2013 - 10/20/2013


Coinciding with Frieze London Art Fair 2013 in neighbouring Regent’s Park, Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and APT Institute are pleased to present the group exhibition Acting Out of Nothingness, featuring contemporary Japanese artists Kanako Sasaki, Koki Tanaka, Zon Ito, Goro Murayama, Motohiro Tomii, Masahiro Wada and Lyota Yagi. The exhibition will feature artworks lent by APT Institute from the Artist Pension Trust® (APT) collection, the largest lending library of artwork by leading and emerging contemporary artists from around the world.

Acting Out of Nothingness unites individual views through the lens of a shared interest in the everyday. Driven by ideas resonant to Japanese culture, the artworks explore and unearth hidden codes, which are often  overlooked, in an apparently systematic and homogenised society. Challenging traditional perceptions, the exhibition layers new rhythms of individuality over the measured cadence of the artists’ collective backgrounds.
