8/ ART GALLERY/ Tomio Koyama Gallery is pleased to present Tom Sachs ‘s solo show “STORE” from Febuary 20th until March 4th. This is his forth exhibition with Tomio Koyama Gallery since his solo show at TKG Editions Kyoto in 2011.
His works are, so to say, "handmade readymades". A mixture of "symbols" such as sacredness and secularity, and fancy and violent things shown in works of a toilet bowl with Prada logos, a McDonald's value meal in Hermés wrapping paper, and Hello Kitty sitting neatly as the Virgin Mary or bambino (Jesus as a boy) in presepio (Nativity Scene) attract us with the intentional naive detail. "STORE" showcased in this exhibition is the trunk that contains Tom Sach's recent edition works. In this exhibition, one video work in 2011 and three sculptural works in 2012 are also on view along with his recent sculptures, products and catalogues, including "Kelly Bag" and "American Tool Kit". Please enjoy the ironically humorous world of his creative expression.
