“There are three in the world. Same, Different and Resembling.”

Humans, ever since being human beings, have produced a work of art. They continued to desire the same form which is called a works of art. And they carved the history by the difference of contingency which inevitably occurs in between them. So, we had to continue to fight on the difference between the same work of art. However, we is prohibited such a barren disputes now and here. 
The problem is that this picture is resembling to that picture, and that sculpture is not resembling this sculpture. In other words, it is the only problem that this world is resembling to that world.
Our world is resembling to the art of Renaissance. There is that perspective in our world, and our space is resembling to that color. In other words, our world is resembling to this world.
Why you can be sure this resembling. Because our bodies are resembling to the human’s who started making the work of art. Thus, that human is resembling and have being resembling to me.
However, how is resembling? After all, the mystery is the one. Anyway and anywhere, our work is for this body and that body.
For the resembling of inevitable body occur in between them.
Our skin as a surface is resembling to the form of the relief which is carved from the natural rock (Yusuke Suga). If our skin which is disguised our body form is the forth surface that follows the gas, the liquid and the individual, put in this body in between the blinking of the fifth surface whici appears in this modern age (Houxo Que). Its color refuse to be picked up by the spectrum which is visualised the particles (Shingo Aruga). In the interior of that color, non sensitive world grows wild witout input and output (Goro Murayama). The Big Bang of that world would like to be resembling this sound of pulse that surprise us every morning (Nobuaki Ito). However, that’s nothing to be compared to what I love you(Saito Yugo).
We will inverts the perspective to building a new body. Of course, our attempt will be mistaken. However, this is not just a failure. It will be the great mistake for this and that the world (Taichi Hanafusa).

“I should have liked to produce a good book. This has not come about, but the time is past in which I could improve it.”


EUKARYOTE is an art space which has been established in Jingumae, Tokyo, in 2018. Within the concept of something more than an occurrence of art, there is an ever spinning contemporary coin of tangibility and intangibility, and it is this essence, this universal value held by artworks and artists, which is actively accepted but left behind.
