Hal Osawa, Yurina Okada, and Erika Naka “Rhapsodic Spectrum”
biscuit gallery (Shibuya, Tokyo), a commercial contemporary art gallery on Shoto Bunkamura Street in Shibuya, is pleased to announce “Rhapsodic Spectrum,” a group exhibition featuring Hal Osawa, Yurina Okada, and Erika Naka. The exhibition will be on view from November 2 to November 19.
The exhibition’s main visual, a collaboration between the three artists, Osawa, Okada, and Naka, is entitled “Caerus,” meaning “opportunity” or “one moment in time.”
One of the common features of the three artists’ work is what could be called the instantaneous nature of their techniques and the motifs they select. In this exhibition, the three artists interacted with each other to compose the exhibition.
Please take this opportunity to view the results of the unique exchange between these three artists.

I make the venture of “bugging” the act of reproduction. While this should result in an act of copying, printed material is transformed into another original work. By reproducing digital reproductions in analog form, I make visible the ambiguity of value in my work.（Hal Osawa）
