The gallery’s attention is focused on the presence of human beings in our post-industrial society, which covers a wide range of topics from social engagement to our relationship with nature, from cultural heritage to the fantasies we sometimes dream of to keep our faith in the world. The gallery’s artists often arouse sentiments that echo universally; they have frequent exhibitions in Japan as well as at international galleries, museums, biennials, triennials, and more.
Beyond exhibitions, WAITINGROOM supports artistic creation through diverse programs, including lectures and workshops that stimulate dynamic discussions. Through building a positive relationship between artists and audiences, WAITINGROOM aims to share artistic inspiration with the world.
There is a physical distance of 3,871 miles between their respective places of residence and a time difference of six hours. This exhibition is the result of two artists meeting for the first time, coexisting in real time online and at the point where their bodies are placed on the ground.
