Keita Miyazaki: A Mirage of Ruins

7 June - 13 July 2018

Rosenfeld Porcini is pleased to announce ‘A Mirage of Ruins’, Japanese artist Keita Miyazaki’s second solo show in the gallery. Featuring Miyazaki’s latest works, ‘A Mirage of Ruins’ displays the development of his language while revealing the increasing visual complexity of his practice. Contemporaneously to our exhibition, a selection of sculptures by Miyazaki will be part of ‘Childhood | Another Banana Day for the Dream Fish’ at Palais de Tokyo in Paris from 21st June to 9th September.

Utopia and Dystopia coalesce in the practice of Keita Miyazaki, a witness of the unmitigated destruction caused by the nuclear meltdown after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011. Aligned with the front of artists that re-utilize discarded elements of our industrialized world to question the twentieth century obsessions which propelled the materialistic drive of so many of the world’s economies, he has forged his own individual path, buttressed by an aesthetic which amalgamates both Western and Oriental influences.
