ABOUT 企画概要

We are pleased to announce "Panta Rhei – For as long as the world turns", the first museum exhibition of Yukimasa Ida in Japan. The exhibition will travel, it will begin at the Yonago City Museum of Art (the artists hometown) from July 22, 2023, and move to the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art, from September 30, 2023.

Ida’s main concept of “ICHI-GO ICHI-E”, which means "a once in a lifetime moment" has been the primary focus of his practice. In this ever-changing world, things, events, and people disperse, yet are unknowingly connected, shaping the world today. People exist in the past and present, each having their own story. Ida's works are about gathering miraculous encounters of individuals and crystallizing them onto canvas based on the reality he captures.

The exhibition will feature his past painting and sculpture, including never seen works in Japan. The show will also present his "End of today" series, in which he uses as a picture diary, and his latest works. The exhibited works represent the trajectory of Ida’s life.

Visitors will be able to feel the two contradictories in Ida’s works "ever-changing things”, and “things never change", as it expands from dots to lines, and from lines to planes, flowing from the past to the future. We hope that this exhibition will provide you with an opportunity to appreciate Ida's powerful art, which is too, a once in a lifetime moment that can only be encountered at this time and place.

Artist statement for exhibition

Artist statement for exhibition

The title of the exhibition is "Panta Rhei (everything flows)", in relation to my personal and heartfelt emotions about art, life, and the ever-changing world.

During the unpreceded pandemic that shook the world, I was also working on shaping the exhibition and theme. Although there were many struggles last year, I gained a lot from the experience. In the midst, I rediscovered the preciousness of human connection from the experience of observing those bonds fade, and that come what may, art is eternal. Art has been supporting me, and will continue. Over the past ten years, I have traveled the world and continue to draw my ephemeral thoughts.

In this exhibition, I am presenting the works that have built who I am presently, as a person, and as an artist. This show is a representation for my oeuvre and holistic practice as an artist. Upon reflection, I have been painting with fervor throughout my career, constantly thinking seriously about who I am. I have been in love, not conscious of where this indelible passion gushes.

I am very honored to have the opportunity to present these works to each of you at Yonago, my hometown where I was born and grew up, and Kyoto, where I was inspired to live as an artist. Having a traveling exhibition in these two locations is like going back to my origins, of which I am still connected to these places by the strings of fate.

I look forward to having the honor of your attendance at this exhibition.

――― Yukimasa Ida
