Suchan Kinoshita: Het verkeerde moment op de juiste plek / The Right Moment at the Wrong Place
17 April 2011 – 18 September 2011
In her first museum exhibition in the Netherlands, Suchan Kinoshita (Tokyo, 1960) restages her oeuvre within the transparent architecture of Museum De Paviljoens (the Aue Pavilions, Robbrecht & Daem, 1992, Documenta IX). Kinoshita plays with the expectations of the audience, recurrence and subtle movements in translation, and she disrupts the synchronism of time and space.
Kinoshita cuts through the logic of the existing spaces in Museum De Paviljoens and creates a new space, based on this architecture, in which her interdisciplinary installations find their niches / spot. Several works come back as a Chinese Whisper
, changed by the course of time, her interpretation from the present and the new location.
Suchan Kinoshita grew up in Japan. In 1981, she moved to Cologne to receive education at the Hochschule fur Musik. Afterwards she was attached for several years to the TAM (Theater am Marienplatz) in Krefeld. Her home base is Maastricht since she studied at the Jan van Eyck Akademie in 1988/89. Previously, Kinoshita had solo exhibitions in amongst others M HKA in Antwerp (Eerste huwelijk, (First Marriage) 2002), Ikon Gallery in Birmingham (Das Fragment an sich (The fragment in itself), 2006-2007) and recently in Museum Ludwig in Cologne (In 10 Minuten, (In 10 Minutes) 2010-2011) and Mudam in Luxemburg (Stick Empathy, 2011).
