March 21 – April 27, 2013
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 21, 2013, 6 – 8 PM

James Cohan Gallery is pleased to present Figment, the gallery’s third solo exhibition of works by Japanese-born, London-based artist Hiraki Sawa, running from March 21 through April 27, 2013. A reception for the artist will take place on Thursday, March 21, from 6 – 8 PM.

Lineament (2012), the central installation, is an immersive video and sound piece originally commissioned by the Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo. This work is a continuation of Figment, a larger project initiated in 2009, from which this exhibition takes its name. Figment so far comprises three ambitious and increasingly surreal videos about the phenomenon of amnesia. The series takes its inspiration from, and is an ongoing means of processing, the sudden-onset and complete memory loss of one of the artist’s friends.
