We are delighted to welcome Toshihiro Komatsu to the Gallery at Wimbledon for his first solo exhibition in the UK. Since studying at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Komatsu has shown extensively both internationally and nationally. He has had exhibitions and projects in a range of public and private exhibitions and project spaces, for example: Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; P.S.1, Deitch Projects and Queens Museum of Art, New York; Watertoren CHK, Netherlands; Ulsan, the Republic of Korea; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, Taiwan. He is currently Associate Professor, Department of Fine Arts, Faculty of Art, Kyoto Seika University.
Building on a dialogue established between Komatsu and Tamiko O’Brien - Head of School of Fine Art at WCA - initiated while she was on a residency in Tokyo, the project is based on a 1 month residency at WCA. For the exhibition Komatsu will make a new site based work for The Gallery at WCA with other project material on show in the Foyer space.
