PRETEND THE SPOON IS AN AEROPLANE

Gracjana Rejmer-Cánovas & Ernesto Cánovas

18 may 2018

PazYcomedias Gallery is very pleased to show the joint project of the artists Gracjana Rejmer-Cánovas and Ernesto Cánovas.

Under the title "Pretend the spoon is an airplane", Gracjana and Ernesto use references of Japanese contemporary popular culture for the creation of their works in this exhibition.

From fashion icons like designer Issey Miyake to the artistic movement called "Flat Movement" -whose maximum exponent and recognized member is Takashi Murakami", the artists have used as reference characteristic elements of his creations, such as the use of pleats in fabrics of the first, or the use of satured colors in the work of Murakami.

The titles of the works that make up the exhibition arise from word games taken from the book "Little Boy: The Arts of Japan´s Exploding Subculture", edited by the Japanese artist, in which Murakami arques how the pop media culture influenced the contemporary Japanese artistic creation in relation to the social implications of the Superflat.
