Yukimasa Ida‘s highly anticipated solo museum exhibition, titled Panta-Rhei – For as long as the world turns and thoughtfully curated by Jérôme Sans, is now on view at the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art until December 3.

This exhibition unveils the profound themes that Ida has explored throughout his artistic journey. Known for his in-depth investigation of “Ichi-go Ichi-e,” the notion of a once-in-a-lifetime encounter, Ida’s work delves into the essence of human connections and fleeting moments. His art transcends boundaries, encompassing both the abstract and the figurative, employing mediums such as painting and sculpture, and showcasing pieces in various scales. As one of the leading lights among Japan’s emerging artists, Ida’s inaugural solo museum exhibition underscores his role as an influential figure in the contemporary art scene.

Moreover, this exhibition serves as a unique opportunity to witness the harmonious coexistence of traditional and contemporary elements in Ida’s oeuvre. By navigating the fluid boundaries between mediums and forms, Ida successfully bridges the gap between the past, present, and future in a world marked by rapid change. His versatility as an artist is vividly displayed as he seamlessly transitions from the delicate strokes of a paintbrush to the tactile nature of modeling clay, creating an array of captivating portraits and landscapes.

The exhibition’s central focus on Ida’s enigmatic crushed portraits, particularly in monumental pieces like “Koji” (2021) and “Jorgen” (2022), highlights the artist’s deep reflections on the erosion of physicality in our increasingly digitized world and the anonymity that can accompany modern society’s collective identity.

Elsewhere in art, Gabriel Moses recently announced the release of his first-ever monograph.
