TANIKADO ARTS
Operating a contemporary art gallery, we have contributed to the discovery of young artists and their promotion to the world. In fostering art networks we have not only supported artist exhibitions and presented their works in domestic and international art fairs but we have also initiated a lecture series “Art Produce Salon” and engaged in print production.

3331 Arts Chiyoda is not simply an art centre, here one can experience the work of creative practitioners of all generations, genders, genres and forms, while at the same time like a general merchandise store this space offers frequent events and happenings, anticipating the many different approaches to Tokyo to be exhibited here. Tanikado Arts presents here 3 young artists who take as the source of their creative production the insubstantial image, the things that can not be seen by the eye, the phenomenon that can not be sensed in the everyday and whom take an approach to Tokyo as a city whose real condition can never be captured, a condition which is dream like and beyond our grasp. (Ayako Tanikado)

When I was in high school I heard the phrase “infinite possibility” many times. Now, even though I can not be sure who said this, it is a memory which still flies about me. I was born and brought up in Tokyo, there were always many different people around me, there were no shortage of places to go, habitually encountering new things in real time. Certainly one can view Tokyo life as full of “infinite possibilities”. However at the same time the infinite choices which spread before me (people to meet, places to go) I wonder if I chose with conviction, perhaps I passed by with fear. But finally after encountering no restriction or suppression, certain of “freedom of choice”, we find no happiness in “infinite possibility”. We are thrown into the wide open world in a daze, and stumblingly roam it in a state of fright. “Infinite possibilities” can be seen as a symbol of Tokyo. But we can not get used to thinking this way. It rather forces us into earnest wandering.

Since coming to Kyoto already 12 years have passed. Before that I was living in Ibaraki, I have therefore lived 15 years in Kanto and 12 years in Kansai. Even though I can say that I lived in Kanto, I was living in the far north of the northern most prefecture of this region, so geographically Tokyo was not a place which I could easily cast my eyes upon. Of course when looking at it from the perspective of Kyoto it is even further away, so for me Tokyo is a memory of a distant place. Certainly it is a centre of culture and economics (as Osaka is close by I can feel this rather strongly) but although the “present” exists here, it is very difficult to distinguish the new trend, the future. On the other hand here in Kyoto, with its exclusive, unique air one can daily feel that something new can be born here. However there can be no doubt that the “present” of Tokyo is one of tremendous strength.
