Learn more about the Power of Ownership with Yoshinori Niwa at 1335MABINI
The exhibit opens on January 9, 2016.
(SPOT.ph) Tokyo-based artist Yoshinori Niwa’s works are performances that openly confront thoughts, substances, and situations in a socio-political context. In his solo exhibition entitled Power of Ownership at 1335MABINI, Niwa explores the purpose of language in the act of privately owning an object. The exhibit is on view from January 9 to February 7, 2016.
Niwa reverses the idea of labeling something with the owner’s name to show possession. In Power of Ownership, the artist asks workers who embroider labels to sew their names on the products rather than the buyer’s. In the process, Niwa challenges the existing social practice, a change in perspective that defines his creative practice.
The exhibit runs from January 9 to February 7, 2016 at 1335MABINI.
