“Young Aggressive Aspect”
Contemporary Art Exhibition at Galaxy Countach
“Young Aggressive Aspect”
As the project exhibition curated by Emiko Kato, “Young Aggressive Aspect” is held at the art bar ‘Galaxy Countach’ (the owner, Toshiki Yagisawa) in Shinjuku, every two month in August, October, and December.
In this exhibition, three emerging artists were born after 1975 who intend to indicate the next generation, and remarkably progress with aggressive approaches from the outside of the market principle. The peculiar essences as artists’ liberal motivation are added with skeptical resistant pungency and innocence in urban lives for their creation. And they make use of various languages such as conceptual, action, performance, and process work, etc.
Therefore, they sincerely incline their mind to explore the reality of art, and then their struggling thoughts on this situation might be provoked into encouraging aggressiveness effectively.
We are pleased that you could see the exceptional stimulating art, in which the surface of art value would be broken through, and opposed against the trend on the globalisation of art standard in the world with accelerating speed.

1.Hikaru Fujii – “NIKEPOLITICS”
Hikaru Fujii - born in Tokyo, 1976. He is actively working in Japan, ten years after coming back from Paris.
Hikaru Fujii looks at the contradiction and the problem of the society, and indicates that the weak' aspects and the cracks in the community structure have actualised.
He reveals the potential uneasiness and impatience that people have held, and makes the art works using moving images and social activities for the distortion of a global society. Up to now, he adopts politics, economy, arts policy, and law as his concept which leads to rouse people's perception and senses gathered and divided. In the meantime, he organises himself a variety of talk events on the topics of daily issues and political matters, etc., named C.U.T at home irregularly.
"Nike Politics" as his recent work is exhibited in which branding of the protective wear of the riot police, and the imitating of Nike CM are installed. This CM work is that a riot police and a soccer player are performing (struggling with each other), and it is excellent as the image beauty. As his developing project, he is actually going to make the executive presentation to Nike Japan during the exhibition.
