Fremantle Arts Centre Artist in Residence Manabu Kanai (JPN) challenges the boundaries of art forms, questioning why and how we assign a particular form to our creative expression. In his exhibition Parataxis, Everyday Life, Kanai attempts to create work that not only considers form but also reflects upon the architectural space of the gallery in which it is housed. His final installations incorporate found stones, MDF, acrylic paint and pastel drawings.

Join us for the exhibition opening and meet the artist on Sunday 6 November from 3-5pm. Kanai will be available to give tours and discuss his work and residency throughout the rest of the exhibition by appointment. Please email manabukanai@terrainvague.info to arrange a time.

Manabu Kanai is an artist based in Tokyo, working beyond conventional art disciplines. Kanai completed a PhD at Tokyo University of the Arts (2015) and a post-doctoral research project at the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Ideas as a Pola Art Foundation Fellow (2016). His practice questions the very act of 'making art'. Recent exhibitions include TRANSPRESENTNESS: Inventions and Time of the Androgynous, VCA Student Gallery, University of Melbourne (2016), A Standard for Several Things, A-things, Tokyo (2014), FUKAKAI NO Literacy, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum (2013) and Interpenetrating Spaces, Suspended Coincidence, Kasárne Culture Park, Kociše, Slovakia (2013).
