Akiko Hashimoto|I saw it, it was yours.


Saturday, September 11 – Saturday, October 30, 2021


Closed on Sundays, Mondays, and National Holidays 

*The gallery will be closed on October 22 and 28.


Gallery Koyanagi is proud to present a solo show of Akiko HASHIMOTO, titled “I saw it, it was yours.” from September 11th to October 30th, 2021.

Born in 1988, HASHIMOTO obtained Master’s degree from Musashino Art University in 2015.

HASHIMOTO’s recent activity includes being selected the finalist of the 14th shiseido art egg exhibition, and presented ‘Ask him’, her solo show with Shiseido Gallery, and won the shiseido art egg award in 2020. She has also held a solo show in Paris titled ‘Will it rain?’ to summarize her stay with Cité internationale des arts.


At first glance, HASHIMOTO’s work only seems to consist of pencil drawings on white paper, displayed in a dimly lit room with simple interior goods such as furniture and light fixture. The meticulously drawn pictures are often bent slightly, or folded to hide a part of it, and are attached lightly to the wall by adhesive. However, it is the composition of a picture embracing the elements, including the audience’s presence in it, made visible by careful lighting, that HASHIMOTO is trying to present.


There will be 10 new works shown, along with the large work shown in ‘Ask him’ that depicts a transparent curtain. Please come visit the installation and see what effect it might have on you.
