SYNONYM is an online and offline network project space focusing on community-based storytelling, created by Soichiro Kimura and Axel Wang. We are directors, curators and producers of art & design projects and exhibitions, from conception to realisation, we aim to bridge and to expand the horizons of the commercial, niche and cultural sectors.
Established in both Nagoya, Japan and London, UK, the underlying connotation behind our name ‘SYNONYM’ implies that despite all the individual differences we are all similar one way or another. On this constantly evolving platform, we would like to take you along a journey starting from Japan, presenting a curation of ideas and objects.
In a parallel universe simultaneously, SYNONYM cultivates an online journal documenting cities, museums, art spaces and fairs across the globe. Acting as a catalyst, we initiate dialogues with creatives, artists, gallerists and designers in the field of art, fashion, craft, design and more, aspired to bring exceptional creative talents all over the world together.
