ASHIYA GALLERY

KH Gallery Ashiya is a museum-like gallery where visitors can indulge in the masterpieces of Hiroko Koshino in tranquility.
Natural light seeping into the powerful space designed by architect Tadao Ando illustrates the contrast between undressed concrete walls and paintings, shifting in pattern from moment to moment.
The lush nature cropped by the large windows serves as a source of inspiration for Koshino Hiroko’s artistic endeavors, rendering the artist to return to this place as her production studio every weekend.
Our gallery is open to the public on a reservation basis, except for Sundays when doors are open to drop-in visitors.

Etori Kenji's official web site

KH Gallery Ashiya will hold the special exhibition “Kenji Etori x Hiroko Koshino”. Etori’s three-dimensional plastic works are human figures molded and shaped from human bodies using wire nets. Their emerging surface creates a vague existence. Attracted by their light atmosphere, Koshino invited Etori for collaboration. Etori who creates human outline from flat wire nets with his hand, and Koshino who has been questioning human spiritual richness through clothes—works by these two artists pursue how the surface should be and depict the inner spirit and life.

In the exhibition, the installation of Etori’s human figure modeled and clothed with a light cloth by Koshino will be displayed along with their individual works. Its creation process is just like the fashion scene where she would make clothes using hands in front of a model. Drapes, twists and volume created in the hands of Koshino cover the body softly and create liveliness, and summer sunlight that shines on the concrete walls produces a dramatic atmosphere.
Please come enjoy the collaboration by the two artists who question the human body and spirit through art and fashion.
