Our current exhibition, Levi Pata solo exhibition "Continuous Gunfire and Greek Music" has been appreciated by many visitors since the opening in the end of last month. The title "Continuous Gunfire and Greek Music"came from one scene of the movie "The Godfather", which, to Levi, seemed symbolise both negative and positive sides of human being. As if suggesting uneasiness in one hand and happiness in the other, they are also symbolising Levi's everyday life in Tokyo.
Bringing out contradictions lying underneath all of us - although which seamlessly fused together-, Levi's fresh sensibility is lively represented in this exhibition.
This exhibition is finishing this Saturday.

FOIL GALLERY is currently showing solo exhibition of Israeli photographer,
Anat Parnass "FAR AWAY FROM (HERE)".
In this exhibition, photographs taken in Japan and Israel
have been showed in a line.
5 years since Anat Parnass has moved to Tokyo - the daily life of
the two countries through the artist's view, ordinary but far different from
what we'd expect from the name of "Israel" is captured in the photographs.
FOIL GALLERY's 2011 has started with Shigekazu Onuma
photo exhibition "Yashiki".
Although Onuma's photographs in "Yashiki" exhibitions are all taken
in his neighborhood, a moment of everyday life, they are at the same time
uncannily unfamiliar. This may because what the photograph actually
capture is something inhabiting in the everyday scenery,
succeeding memories from old times.
This show is finishing in this weekend.
Self Published, limited edition book (with original print) is also available during this show.
127 × 180 mm / ￥15,000 (ex tax)

Syoin Kajii's new series "KAWA" (river) has been presented in his solo exhibition held at our gallery. Syoin Kajii has established his career as a photographer with his phenomenal series of "NAMI" (wave). Keeping the dynamic of the "NAMI",
in this series he also challenges new possibility in its one-direction, calm moves of streams. The rather abstract, geometrical beauty of water reveals the sublime figure of rivers.
This show runs until Saturday, 16th October.
