Hauser & Wirth is delighted to present the first solo exhibition by the Ōsaka-born, Paris-based artist Takesada Matsutani in Hong Kong.
For six decades Matsutani has developed a unique visual language of form and materials. From the early 1960s until the 1970s Matsutani was a key member of the influential post-war Japanese art collective, the Gutai Art Association. As part of the group, Matsutani experimented with vinyl glue, using fans and his own breath to manipulate the substance, creating bulbous and sensuous forms.
This exhibition, organised with Olivier Renaud-Clément, includes new multi-media paintings, works on paper and an important site-specific installation from the artist's archive.
