Descripción de la Exposición

Trevor Shimizu: Hi Ken, I am writing about our upcoming show together. It is our first show since 2012, HOT. Five years ago. What have you been up to since then? Ken Kagami: It's been five years since the HOT exhibition! I feel as though time has passed so quickly. My daughter has grown since then - now she is an elementary school student. Trevor Shimizu: That's amazing. Are things much different? Ken Kagami: I just seem to be getting old. Regarding my work, I think that my work is becoming simpler than before; Also the work has become more refined visually, my thinking towards making art and how this is structured has become more simple. I guess nobody notices… Trevor Shimizu: What are you going to show? Ken Kagami: For our show, I am thinking to mix several different recent bodies of work. First off, there is a series of contemporary art mentor comedies and also a missing series which references commonly seen posters hanging throughout the city; only, the lost things featured in my work are impossible to lose; for example, missing anal... I am also making a series of sculpture/text based works which say, for example, If you see a boring painting, please throw it away in this trash can (this written on a real trash can) or If you see a boring sculpture, please break it with this hammer (written on a real hammer). These are all cynical works... I especially like a new work made with a pillow which says, please use this pillow as a sales tool. I hope I can create a successful mix for this exhibition. Trevor Shimizu: I'm not sure what I'm showing. Maybe Late Work, Groupies, or Farts. Maybe all of them. They're all erotic somehow. The Late Works are supposedly painted by a future self - a heterosexual male who's passion is the nude female form. The Fart painting I'm thinking of showing depicts a man and a woman in bed, farting, laughing, enjoying each other's farts. The Groupies are a new series of spam Instagram profiles that recently followed me. I'm calling them Groupies because their profiles use sexual imagery and language. They also disappear after a day or so. Trevor Shimizu: What is your favorite movie? Ken Kagami: My favorite movie is Dawn of the Dead.
