    For the uninitiated, artist Noriyuki Haraguchi (b.1946) is pre-eminent; a leading figure from the Mono-ha movement who, although in his mid-70s, continues to make work with the ferocity of his 20 year-old self. As a sculptor, painter and installation artist, his works are alternative talismans for a televisual age — something interstitial, existing between the

A selection of these paintings are now on display at Space 23˚C in Todoroki. Each painting focuses on an undefinable

    I recently found my photographs of Georges Adéagbo’s London show from 1995. Strange detail jumps out as I look at these again: an interview with writer Kenzaburo Oe being one (we share a birthday; exactly twice my age), and political scientist Suzanne Berger on “Anti-statism” being the other. “This exhibition brought together six contemporary artists,

    “It’s midnight, there’s no one here. The machines break down and start talking to each other.” Eduardo Paolozzi I’ve always appreciated the idea of “slow preparation, fast execution,” but I think this little project may have taken the idea a little too literally.
