eitoeiko is pleased to announce a solo exhibition Faceblock/Smartthorn by Yuki Hashimoto. Yuki Hashimoto(b.1988, Toyohashi, Aichi) received his B.A. from Musashino Art University in 2011 and will receive his B.A. from Tama Art University in 2013. The show will be held as his second solo exhibition at eitoeiko and as well as his degree show. Hashimoto will graduate with an excellent award from the department of ceramic of Tama Art University.
In his project 'Wickets of the world', the artist united the world of social network service and one of the most ancient technology of human. Hashimoto collected thumbnail portraits from SNS, introduced as people who may know by SNS but actually the artist doesn't know. The artist regarded their faces like virtual images, and then he dropped them into ceramics. In the other words, Hashimoto attempts to connect a substance with a mirage. The artist indicates an essence of communication of human exists inside of us 'face to face'. In addition, using fire to make ceramics recollects the origin of the birth of human beings.
The other work, Hashimoto will show his newest series of objects. Used cellular phone which is decomposed and is reconstructed will be hanged on a wall like an altar of dead. Its owner's portrait was summoned by a method of Joseph Rodes Buchanan (American, 1814-1899), as a shadow of temporary society which pursues an advanced network and mobility. The work exists like an urban myth which hid the dubiousness of the occult.
