YOD Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition, "Kii-chan", by Issay Kitagawa that will be held from 6th to 29th April 2010.
"Kii-chan" who came to the gallery with a slogan of "Cheer up Osaka too" is transformed into diverse forms showing a strong opportunity.
Art robot "Kii-chan" sleeping through the exhibition in the gallery space will wake up and get exercise by playing.
"Kii-chan", who achieved success in the "Cheer up Tokyo" project last year, will start moving as a symbol of energy to charge power into not only Osaka but also all the Kansai area, by involving a different kind of industries to develop together.
Please enjoy all the action of "Kii-chan" as if we rejoice to see our child's birth and growth.
We will also hold a talk event by Issay Kitagawa. He will talk about the content of this exhibition and his recent works.
It will be a substantial lecture in which we can catch a glimpse of the essence of his philosophy and his way of thinking about the object.
