American artist, the first great retrospective show of Gordon Matta ゠ Clark (1943-78) in Asia. When Matta = Clark who learned architecture at university moved stage to art, we played an active part around New York in the 1970s. In spite of short activity before dying of an illness at 35 years old, we continue still affecting many artists.
Matta ゠ Clark gets rid of a part of floor and the wall of building before demolition and gives the world of art at the time shock by project of "building cutting" (building cuts) to let you transform common daily life to totally new space and time. In addition, we showed new artist image when we were concerned with administration of space "112" for art, music, dance and management of restaurant "FOOD" by artist and paid attention to street culture such as graffiti quickly while reading air in the times subtly.
We approach the total picture of this artist representing the 1970s from sculpture, photograph, picture, drawing.
