Ever-present Memory 8:15 a.m. August 6

After graduating from university with a degree in architecture and design, Tsuchiya moved to London to study sculpture. He uses natural materials such as wood and stone, as well as disused furniture and scraps of demolished houses, to create works with the themes of location, memory, and time. After entering a room shaped like one of the keyhole-shaped tumuli of prehistoric Japan, covered with blackened iron and copper, visitors are confronted with a wall of clocks, the sounds of their ticking second hands blending and overlapping. The artist grew up in a family that ran a clock shop, and this work reflects childhood memories of growing up surrounded by timepieces. As they contemplate each clock, viewers will also find memories of their own coming back to them.
