Tommaso Corvi-Mora is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by Tomoaki Suzuki.

Tomoaki Suzuki has lived in London since the late Nineties and for the last fifteen years his practice has consisted of a deceivingly simple work: full-figure, scaled-down portraits of friends and acquaintances. Through this very simple means he has managed to touch many different issues: the changing face of youth culture and fashion and the different strategies people use to define their individuality through the clothes they wear; he has explored his continued interest in analysing the relationship between the work, the viewer and their surroundings by always presenting the sculptures on the floor of the exhibition spaces; he has injected new life in traditional wood-carving techniques without slipping into kitsch or faux-naive vernacular; all the while putting together a personal history of youth culture in the East End and more specifically in Dalston, where he has lived for many years, by creating a gallery of portraits of its inhabitants, like a 3-D, contemporary August Sander. His work has recently been celebrated in a fifteen-year survey at the CAPC, Centre for Contemporary Art, Bordeaux (2014) and with a site-specific commission by the Art Institute of Chicago (2013).

In this exhibition, Tomoaki Suzuki presents a new strand of his work: bas-reliefs of heads in profile, depicting the same models that feature in his 3-D work. This technique allows him to explore the individual features of his models in more detail, creating works that feel at the same time timeless and rooted in the “here and now”.

The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 6pm.
