until 27.01. | #1748ARTatBerlin | Galerie Inga Kondeyne – Raum für Zeichnung shows from 9th December 2017 an exhibition by the Japanese artist Kazuki Nakahara.
Kazuki Nakahara is a graduate of Hanns Schimansky’s school of drawing. Born in Japan, he came to Berlin in 2005 to study with Schimansky. Shaped by his family’s tradition – his father is a calligraph – he has found a place in European art. With impressively precise pencil lines or ink strokes, he began making intuitive depictions of familiar objects on white paper. First they were oversized toothbrushes that danced in abstract space; later he reinvented the typical young girl’s hairstyle – tightly bound, short pigtails. Parted hair tied tightly on both sides is one of Kazuki Nakahara’s typical motifs which he investigates in many variations, sometimes floating freely in groups or as an individual form. Now, on large format paper placed on the floor, he meditatively makes circles, stroke by stroke.Nakahara’s strictly controlled, linked lines and his spherical shapes, can be transformed in one’s fantasies to billiard tables on which the “Parting-Award” is played for, they sweep out over our window sills and become magical heavenly bodies.
