Opening hours | 8: 00 ~ 24: 00

西山美なコは、1980年代後半から巨大な「リカちゃんハウス」を思わせる作品や宝塚の書き割り風の作品など、少女文化を援用した立体作品で注目を集めました。その後、砂糖や卵白といったお菓子の材料を用いて作った王冠やバラなど、儚く壊れやすい作品を制作し始めます。 本展では、90年代の少女漫画をモチーフとした東京では初展示となる大作と、「デ・ジェンダリズム-回帰する身体」(1997、世田谷美術館/東京)で発表された中から平面によるインスタレーション作品、そして、2000年代から砂糖で制作している《Sugar Roses》の新作などを展示致します。西山美なコの世界観を、断片的ではありますが体現出来る展示となるでしょう。
