Christian Hidaka — Souvenir

Past: December 1, 2012 → February 2, 2013

The derivation of the title of Christian Hidaka’s exhibition at Galerie Michel Rein, Souvenir, is from the French, ‘to come to mind’. This cognitive inference, which is inspired by a physical memento or form is in common with Hidaka’s different depictions of space within the exhibition and the various notions of the competing representational values which accompany them.

Drawn from distinct sets of representational language, Hidaka’s works mediate references to two periods which greatly informed the depiction of the pictorial plane. That of the 1480’s, of Piero della Francesca and the influence of Euclidean geometry, with composition dependant on and within the parameters of the frame; and a second group which infer a limitless unfolding of space, which either take the form of ancient Chinese calligraphic landscapes or of a limitless unfolding of digital space, which originated in 1980’s computer games.

The balance of information within these works rests not only in the nature of the subject
