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.

By popular demand, the Homage to Klimt exhibition has been extended with some changes.
Gustav Klimt, a painter in Vienna at the end of the 19th century, created his own style influenced by Japanese traditional arts and crafts.
This new exhibition features works created by Hiroko Koshino that exude Japanese style.
The contemporary-feeling works are born from a combination of her spirit of respect for nature and gorgeous gold.
Please visit this world of harmony between West and East.

We will hold an exhibition entitled “Hiroko Koshino – Homage to Klimt” at KH Gallery Ginza.
The glow of gold and the sensibility to take the era ahead.
Koshino was overwhelmed by the Klimt paintings she encountered in Vienna and felt emotionally connected to his sensitivity to anticipate the new era and his life. Her most recent work, created on the occasion of appearance on a special Klimt episode of the NHK program “Nichiyo Bijutsukan” broadcast in January 2018, will also be exhibited.
We hope you will enjoy Koshino Hiroko’s innovative expression, which responds across time to Klimt’s spirit.
