Standing Pine is a contemporary gallery located in the Nishiki 錦 area in the centre of Nagoya 名古屋. Founded in 2009, presenting shows of a variety of artistic media, the gallery stands to promote not only emerging and established artists, but also aimed to introduce international artists to the local art scene. A bit of a trivia, the name of the gallery is a literal translation of the surname of the gallery director, Takeshi Tatematsu 立松 武, where ‘tate 立’ means ‘standing’ and ‘matsu 松’ means pine tree in Japanese.
We would like to present to you a visual documentation juxtaposing two exhibitions brought by Standing Pine that took place between July and October 2020, titled [The Geometry of the Angel as Point of No Return to Dress the Present] and [Behind the Garden], respectively featuring Joël Andrianomearisoa and two artists Kazuo Okazaki 岡崎 和郎 plus Shinji Ogawa 小川 真司.
