Held by Mizuma Gallery, Ken and Julia Yonetani will showcase a solo exhibition come 4 June. The duo focuses on work that translates the nearby environs and current political issues into works filled with aesthetic and humour.
The pair has had their work showcased, largely – overseas and internationally. They represented Australia at the Venice Biennale in 2009, shown in Singapore Biennale 2013, and have recently held a solo exhibition at the NGA Contemporary, National Gallery of Australia in Canberra. THE GREAT EXHIBITION will be their first solo exhibition in Singapore and will present a survey of their recent works.
The central piece of the exhibition will be The Last Supper (2014) which is a nine-meter table made of over one tonne of groundwater salt. Other pieces include Wishes (2015), Three Wishes (2014), Crystal Palace: The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nuclear Nations (2013), Grape Chandelier (2011), The Five Senses (2011), and Ultrabuddha (2010).
