Solo Exhibition : TORNSCAPE / MOMENT



Kohei Nawa's solo exhibitions TORNSCAPE (Yanaka, SCAI THE BATHHOUSE) and MOMENT (Tennozu, SCAI PARK) will be held at two venues of SCAI THE BATHHOUSE in Tokyo, Japan.


In Nawa’s video installation “Tornscape”, fluids with different properties twist and turn together, continually reacting and transforming in a virtual landscape that covers an entire wall. In the underlying digital simulation, parameters representing factors such as wind speed and the mass and coefficient of the friction of particles have been configured based on meteorological and physical data, and manifest as the motion of countless particles. Inspired by writings that describe disasters and epidemics from 800 years ago, this work depicts a world of transience, like bubbles on a stream, resonating with the times in which we live today. TORNSCAPE (SCAI THE BATHHOUSE) will present this immersive video and sound installation along with his new works including “Dune”, a series of works evoking the earth’s surface and its atmosphere through physical properties of paints.


At MOMENT (SCAI PARK), his new photo series “Moment Photography” will be on view. Stretched in a single direction, these images taken from fast-moving viewpoints capture a series of moments in which the subject has lost its substance.
