Egami Joetsu explores the essence of communication and creates works by visualizing miscommunication such as misalignment, misunderstanding, and misunderstanding based on his own overseas experience. "And what is beautiful in her works is that she," said Julie Champion, curator of the Center Pompidou, Paris. sees all these specificities as a source, not only of misunderstanding, but also of creation and richness in people's relationships.) " After studying abroad in Germany and China, he has continued to make remarkable achievements both in Japan and overseas, such as being invited to an artist talk at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in recent years. Since this year, he has held solo exhibitions in Paris, New York, and Taipei.

After traveling to New York for an overseas dispatch program for emerging artists of the Japan Chemical Agency, he was invited to a talk event at the University of Pennsylvania as a third-generation artist of contemporary art after the war, and gained new discoveries and experiences through solo exhibitions and programs overseas. We will hold an exhibition of the obtained boyfriend at Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore.

He said he loved reading books and second-hand bookstores from an early age. Since the stage of this exhibition is a "bookstore" and there are more opportunities to read again during the quiet period, this time it was active from the Meiji era to the Showa era such as Osamu Dazai and Natsuya. We will display portrait works with the motif of Australia. Please enjoy the space created by Joetsu while thinking about the communication that art and art create, such as Soto interacting with many painters and Akutagawa being fascinated by Western art. ..
