VOICE AND SOUND WAVES : The Japanese scene

Curator: Anne-Laure Chamboissier

From February, 14th to May, 11th, 2019

LE 26BY- Bruxelles

Yukio Fujimoto REVOLUTION & GRAVITY (A Flower & A Glass ball), 2017, mixed media.


Voices and Sound waves : the Japanese scene offers a first exhibition in Belgium, focusing on Japanese sound art.

The Felix Frachon Gallery gives a carte blanche, in its independent space on the 26by, to Anne-Laure Chamboissier, an art historian and a curator who has been conducting research on sound art in Japan for 4 years. The exhibition will feature works – installations, sculptures, ready made, video…- by three generations of artists: Yukio Fujimoto, Mamoru, Lyota Yagi, Atsushi Nishijima, the Softpad collective and Tsuyoshi Hisakado. At a time when personal listening devices and customized playlists have become omnipresent, shared sound spaces are becoming increasingly rare.

This exhibition is an invitation to a discovery of the singular conception of sound in Japan, and to an immersive sensory and auditory experience that will transform the visitor’s perception.
