Ippey Nakajima's works, which are to be exhibited in this exhibition, are a group of works that, as can be seen from the individual works, weave together different and rich colours on each of their small canvas, while bold brushstrokes give a sense of horizontal expansiveness.

When they are all placed together, side by side, on either side of a long aisle, the viewer may feel as if they are standing on a beach looking out across the ocean to the horizon.
Or they may feel as if they are seeing a vision of a vast city lying on the horizon of a distant desert.

In other words, this installation is made up of individual small works, but when experienced as a whole, it will evoke in the viewer the sensation of witnessing a magnificent global landscape.

The view to the side coincides with the view from the Nanko area where the Namura Shipyard is located, and one may envision the future of Osaka on the open horizon to the west.

This is sure to be a site-specific installation that is truly unique to the port area of Osaka.
