Tokyo, Japan - WAITINGROOM is pleased to announce Yusuke SHIBATA Solo Exhibition, Public and Freedom II, from January 28th to February 26th, 2017 and it is the second time to held his solo exhibition at our gallery in three years. Yusuke SHIBATA focuses on the truth and falsehood throughout people, things and happenings, and creates installation work about them. This exhibition is the continuation from his previous solo exhibition, Public and Freedom, which was held at Art Center Ongoing in 2016. It shows “Public Space” which we share to live in this society and “Rubbish” which exists naturally on the street but its chaotic situation. The artist attempts to explore the possibilities of the landscape throughout the relationship of the public space and rubbish and creates installation work mainly based on the photography.

About the artist, Yusuke SHIBATA
Born in 1980 in Fukuoka, currently lives and works in Chiba. He graduated from Musashino Art University in the major of painting in 2005 and obtained a MFA in Printmaking in Fine Arts at Musashino Art University in 2007. He mainly works in video, photography and sculpture, and creates installation work with them, focusing on the ambiguity and uncertainty of the reality. His recent exhibitions include a solo exhibition “Public and Freedom” (Art Center Ongoing, Tokyo, 2016), group exhibition “Shibata and Yamamoto’s First February” (Art Center Ongoing, Tokyo, 2016), solo exhibition “BGM” (WAITINGROOM, Tokyo, 2014), group exhibition “NENDO” (PAN///, Manila, Philippines), group exhibition “Some Like It Witty” (Gallery EXIT, Hong Kong, 2014), solo exhibition “DRIBBLE” (Centro Cultural Borges, Buenos Aires, 2013), performance work at “Roppongi Art Night 2013” (Tokyo, 2013) and many others in Japan and abroad.
