This exhibition features a new installation work entitled Stand. The installation consists of 50 objects some 140cm tall, each composed of a 3mm-diameter steel rod and roughly 10cm-square wood piece. The objects are arranged in the entire space of the gallery. Nakazawa’s characteristic U-shaped steel rod is made to stand independently by fixing it to a white painted wood piece. A closer look reveals that the bottom ends of the rod are also painted white for a length of about 5cms. Each object stands quietly, slightly distorted in form like a sculpture evoking a human figure. As a result of their placement in the gallery, the quality of its space is altered, and the 50 objects function as an installation. Nakazawa has previously displayed a loose regularity in his arrangements of objects. This time, however, he has mentally imagined the overlapping lines and the angles, and randomly arranged the objects as if painting a picture.

This exhibition displays an installation featuring sticks of iron painted white that are set out in the hall. The sticks are arranged at almost equal intervals, like lines drawn on a canvas. It is serenely silent and makes us meditate on the space itself. Nakazawa is an artist who is well known for installation works. However, he also introduced paintings in last year's solo exhibition, which were produced with a strong consideration for the space. A painting is not included in this exhibition, and I would thus recommend the catalog issued by the gallery to refer to it.
