About the artwork

CSG - 136 ( JZ ) - Japanese artist Takeuchi Kozo’s sculptures are characterized by complex geometrical patterns, which evoke the feeling of looking at ancient ruins. Yet simultaneously, the clean white geometric patterns of his creations are meant to represent the architecture of today, prodding the viewer to consider that what exists now will one day be in ruins. Through his visual poetry, the artist skilfully brings an exciting contemporary vision to the rich and diverse tradition of Japanese ceramics.



About the artist

Kouzo Takeuchi is a ceramicist working on the cutting edge of creative porcelain design. Using architectural forms to explore the theme of decay, Takeuchi creates pieces of art which are wholly unique and speak to the passage of time. Takeuchi’s work is characterized by complex geometrical patterns consisting of square tubed porcelain fused together in a kiln. After firing and glazing, Takeuchi strategically chips away at the sculptures with a hammer. The effect of this process evokes the feeling of looking at ancient ruins. But, according to Takeuchi, the clean white geometric patterns of his creations are meant to represent the architecture of today, prodding the viewer to consider that what exists now will one day be in ruins.
