I just got back from an overnight stay in Gora (Hakone area). Whilst there, we stopped by the Hakone Open Air Museum. If you teach sculpture, you may find this interesting. The photos in the video below may also be viewed on my Flickr account here.
Kaneuji produces works by pasting together and assembling ready-made objects such as maps, musical instruments, toys and plastic bottles. His “White Discharge” series would make an interesting MS/HS studio lesson (pictured above). He arranges found objects covering them in resin and allowing them to drip dry.
He also has several pieces involving coffee stains and found driftwood which work quite well together.
It’s his first solo exhibit and ends May 27th. Flickr photos may be viewed here.
