No Vacancy presents 'Modern-Classic' by Shun Kawakami — Melbourne, Australia — 16-27 JUL, 2014

No Vacancy Project Space, Federation Square Atrium, Tenancy 32, Atrium Federation Sq, Melbourne

That the art and design practices of Shun Kawakami are inextricably linked shouldn’t surprise those familiar with his work, for he is, more than anything, a visual communicator who cares not to be defined by the one marker. Born in Fukagawa, Tokyo in 1977, Kawakami’s creative output spans art, design, video, music, installation and spatial interventions. His aesthetic language leans as heavily on negative space as it does the depiction of a particular subject. Through his masterful equilibrium of light and shade, the existent and non-existent appear to intertwine, neither fighting for nor hiding from distinction from the other, rather melding as a proclamation of artist’s poised state.
