Guest Artist: Tejima Yuki

From December 2022 to February 2023, AID#60 was presented at "Tejima Yuki: Hiroshima Sketch vol.3" (organized by Hiroshima MoCA) held at the Yebiden Gallery located along Peace Boulevard. In this work, fragments of the Hiroshima landscape were drawn using a smartphone drawing application, and by repeating and rearranging these fragments, a new landscape was composed, and the resulting digital image was redrawn in paint on canvas. The resulting digital image was then re-painted on canvas. This was also an attempt to create a new landscape in the glass-fronted exhibition space facing the boulevard and at a scale of 7 meters wide. This exhibition introduces both old and new works from the same series, including this work, to trace the flow of the artist's series of projects and to show the connection with the "Views of Hiroshima" paintings in the museum collection.

Collaborative public production by Tejima Yuki

The artist will create a 10-meter-long landscape painting of Peace Memorial Park in public. The process for this work will be the same as that used by the artist for his "AID Series". The digital image is divided into layers of color, and each layer is then painted over and reintegrated on the canvas. After the first session by the artist on April 28, participants will be invited to participate in the process of painting one layer at a time, which will be completed in June.

Guest Artist Profile

Photo: Kensuke Hashimoto

Tejima Yuki

Born in Hokkaido in 1989. In 2014, Tejima received MFA from the Graduate School of Arts, Hiroshima City University. Tejima’s painting works depict the scenery of Hiroshima as the main subject, which is an attempt to explore how the artist relates to the history and life of the place, based on the fact that post-war Hiroshima-based painters continuously sketched the cityscape in the process of their artistic career. The artist’s major solo exhibitions include “Hiroshima Sketch vol.2” (EUREKA [Fukuoka], 2022) and “Hiroshima Sketch” (Gallery G [Hiroshima], 2020). Major group exhibitions include “VOCA Exhibition 2022” (The Ueno Royal Museum [Tokyo], 2022) and “Shell Art Award Exhibition 2020” (The National Art Center, Tokyo [Tokyo], 2020).
