Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre presents Double Zero: The Point Between Future Past, art by Jeremy Isao Speier and Junichiro Iwase. Speier and Iwase present contrasting minimalist aesthetic approaches to social issues and popular culture. Each artist brings a unique sensibility which is grounded in their Japanese ancestry. Deeply inspired by the fragility, vulnerability and pure beauty of eggshells, Junichiro Iwase uses this natural medium to explore perspectives on contemporary society and social issues. In contrast, Jeremy Isao Speier uses kinetics and obsolete technologies, mostly made in Japan, in conjunction with recycled and salvaged found objects from Vancouver, which speak to urban gentrification and the loss of space. A small catalogue will accompany the exhibit.
