Galerie VIVID proudly presents:

Fruits by Hisakazu Shimizu

July 3 - August 21, 2011

Opening reception: Sunday, July 3rd from 4:00 pm

Entitled Fruits, the exhibition presents Hisakazu Shimizu’s newest series of works of the same name. Fascinated by the juxtaposition of fruit, a borderless product of nature, being expressed within the realm of ”pop culture”, a man-made construction, Shimizu set about producing these pieces with the same aggressive stance as his Japanese History series. The exhibition features a wide range of works, from lighting pieces to tableware and clocks. Also on display will be two Hairstyle mirrors, an edition of Galerie Downtown/François Laffanour, Paris

The exhibition is curated by Eizo Okada

Japanese designer Hisakazu Shimizu is a member of Canon's in-house design team, whose better known works include product lines such as the Canon digital IXUS camera. Shimizu also develops his own products under the guise of 'Sabo Studio' creating colorful and simplistic pieces that in some cases border on art installations.
Hisakazu Shimizu lives and works in Tokyo, Japan
