The Whole and a Part
November 19, 2011 @ 10:00 am - February 26, 2012 @ 5:00 pm¥65 – ¥360
In this exhibition, featuring works from the HMoCA collection ranging from painting and photography to video, sculptural pieces and installations, all specifically chosen to convey a sense of the elements of ‘whole’ and ‘part’ and their relationality.
If an individual work of art is viewed as a ‘whole’, by rights it will contain component ‘parts’. But when it comes to artistic expression, ‘parts’ do not exist solely as elements buried in the ‘whole’. This is thus a relationship by no means measurable by simple add-back analysis or judgment, that is by assuming that the sum total of the ‘parts’ is the ‘whole’, or that the ‘whole’ can be broken down into ‘parts’.
