For both artists this is their first solo exhibition in Taiwan. TAGUCHI will bring her signature works that transcend/blur the boundary between painting and photography. In the complex process of creating her works, she first collects bits and pieces of images from the variety of media such as fashion magazines and the Internet to create a montage, which is subsequently rendered as a painting. Then she captures the painting with photography. At every stage, her work undergoes change, becoming something that seems familiar yet strange. She says, “As the image goes through many processes, its existence itself changes. I always want to get closer to ‘some sort of meaning’ by taking these processes. By diversifying the process, I create a multivalent fiction. All the more so, I may be guiding it to a certain view, like saying: Come along here.” With extremely different style and form, Teppei KANEUJI brings installations and collage works that move between contrary situations; e.g. cities and the outskirts, necessity and accident, light and shadow, two- and three-dimensions, illusion and reality. He says he accumulates small phenomena and leads those to a larger phenomenon. Those small phenomena turn into a mass at a certain point in the processes of meaningful things losing meanings, and meaningless things taking on meanings. “Then I capture the mass. Imagining happenings at neglected void space and time in cities or enigmas of which I am unaware.”

Born in 1979, Kazuna TAGUCHI was conferred a doctorate degree in painting from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2008. She has exhibited widely internationally including at the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei Biennale 2006, OK Center for Contemporary Art in Linz, Austria, Le Magasin - Centre National d'Art Contemporain in Grenoble, France, with a latest invitation by the Yokohama Triennial 2011. Prizes won include Purchased Price by Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, Nomura Prize and VOCA. Born in 1978, Teppei KANEUJI received his master’s degree in sculpture from Kyoto City University of Arts in 2003. His accomplishments include setting Yokohama Museum of Art’s record as the youngest artist to have a solo exhibition there and his work just made the cover of 2011 Singapore Biennial’s exhibition catalogue. He has been exhibited internationally, including Le Magasin - Centre National d'Art Contemporain in Grenoble, France, Minsheng Art Museum in Shanghai, China, Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Trino, Italy.
