Participating Artists
Handiwirman Saputra (b. 1975)
Chiba Masaya (b. 1980)

Interested in “materials,” Handiwirman produces works using a variety of materials and techniques, predominantly sculpture. Chiba meanwhile is known for his technique of actually constructing strange environments containing figures he makes himself, and using these as motifs for painting.
This exhibition will focus on the differences in gaze, approach etc., between the two artists with regard to matter, materials, environment and boundaries, and also what they have in common.
