[Art Talk] Tatsuo Kawaguchi : Time Compass


Prior to its summer session of the exhibit "Tatsuo Kawaguchi : Time Compass", a preview reception was held at Echigo-Tsumari Kiyotsu Soko museum, with attendance by Mayer or Tokamachi City, curators of museums, press people and others. The talk session was developed between Kawaguchi and Masanori Ichikawa, art critic, to explore the recurrent themes of time and relation. These two themes have strongly engaged the thinking and hand of Kawaguchi throughout his career. It was significant that a part of Kawaguchi's work was deciphered and shared with audience in front of installation of Soko museum.

We would like to introduce the catalogue of the exhibition newly published on this special occasion.
The book is forwarded by Cai Guo-Qiang as goes "Talk Talk my Teacher Mr. Tatsuo Kawaguchi and I" since Cai was a student to Kawaguchi at University of Tsukuba. Itinerary of travelling through Kawaguchi works exhibited in the museum rooms and gymnasium show the development of early works from sixties to present, including such pivotal works as those made of iron, copper changing its appearance with time process.
