The exhibition will be held under the theme of "future" in the museum corner of the "OKAZAKI Kazuro × SHIBAKAWA Toshiyuki | The future of fossils and fossils in the future" exhibition, supported by the G7 Kurashiki Education Ministers' Meeting and Art Museum Renaissance Project "Discovered past, present and future". In this exhibition, the works of artists OKAZAKI Kazuro and SHIBAKAWA Toshiyuki will be exhibited in collaboration.
OKAZAKI Kazuro (1930 ~) conceived a concept of "Gyobutsubu (Fish meat, cut into chunks)" which became the production philosophy after exhibiting at the Yomiuri Endeavor in the 1960's. By inverting and transforming the shape of everyday objects, we created an object that complements something that had previously been overlooked, presenting a new perspective on objects and space.
SHIBAKAWA Toshiyuki "Modern society 2000 years from now" is inspired by the Pompei ruins in Italy and the Kusado-sengencho ruins in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture, which disappeared after a volcanic eruption 2000 years ago, and continues his production activities on the theme of (1966 ~). SHIBAKAWA's production method uses everyday objects as canvases and uses painting techniques to create works inspired by "Fossils 2000 years later (unearthed articles)".
As you can see, the two of us continue to work with a completely different approach while using everyday objects as motifs. In "HISASHI" OKAZAKI tried to imply a whole having both man and nature. Production vectors are always future-oriented. From a futuristic perspective, Shibakawa looks at the fossilized modern "Mono" and questions the way modern society should be.
We hope that you will enjoy the depth and breadth of the originality and expression of the "future" that each of the 2 artists expresses by collaborating on the theme of "Future of fossils and fossils in the future". (text: flyers)

岡崎和郎(1930〜)は、1960年代に読売アンデパンダン展の出品を経て、制作理念となる概念 「御物補遺(ぎょぶつほい)」を構想。日常の物の形を反転させたり変形させたりして、従来見落とされてきた何物かを補足するようなオブジェを制作し、物と空間に対する新しい見方を示しました。
