Tokyo, Japan - WAITINGROOM is pleased to announce Rikako KAWAUCHI Solo Exhibition, “Tiger Tiger, burning bright”, through May 19th to June 17th. Starting from KAWAUCHI’s own interest in the action of eating, she focuses on the subject of body, mind and ambiguous relationship between them. She depicts SELF and OTHERS as motifs in the scenes of eating food, having sex, and many other ways of communication where different elements intersect. Using a very strong and characteristic line, she’s been expanding her ways of impression from painting and drawing to wire sculpture and neon sculpture. This is KAWAUCHI’s second solo exhibition at the gallery in two years, and the exhibition will showcase 25-30 new works including paintings, drawings, wire sculptures, and resin sculpture as her new material.
