Giant Robot is proud to present Tiny Little Objects – Yukinori Dehara
Aug 2 – Aug 20th, 2014
Opening Reception with the Artist: Aug 2, 2014, 6:30-10:00 PM
Giant Robot 2 – 2062 Sawtelle Boulevard – Los Angeles CA 90025
Yukinori Dehara’s latest work strays from his past of creating boxed original sculptures. His latest entry into the figure world are minuscule versions of his art pieces. In what we’d call a smart move to do something completely different from the years of sculpting paper clay and then packaged to appear like a toy figure, these pieces will have it’s freedom and at the same time, be intimate. You’ll have to move in closer to see his objects.
On AUGUST 3rd 2-3:30pm, Dehara will work with Katsuya Terada on Japanese Yokai monsters. The details for this event will emerge, but thus far it appears to be a demo of live art.
