“Time is for me, most important. I was born, I must die. But my conscious is streaming for infinity. My infinity, my purpose, my desire is there. That’s my imagination.” –Takesada Matsutani
This online exhibition at Hauser & Wirth follows Matsutani’s retrospective survey at the Centre Pompidou and coincides with the re-opening of Takesada Matsutani: Prints, 1967–1977 at les Abattoirs, Toulouse, in partnership with the National Institute of Art History, France (INHA).
The artist’s unique visual language forms one of the most pioneering oeuvres to emerge from post-war Japan and is continually celebrated globally. With the online exhibition, Stream, Ōsaka-born and Paris-based artist Takesada Matsutani presents a series of previously unseen works, alongside a significant body of preparatory drawings, multi-media paintings and lithographs, dating from the 1970s to present day.
