We will present the exhibition of “shapes of Element” by C-DEPOT working on the philosophy of “ART=Diversity.”
“Element” has a meaning of “elements that form the whole” and is a term used to refer to the forces of nature such as the earth, wind, fire, and water that are familiar to our lives. The ancient indigenous aesthetic sense of Japan has been found from such natural conditions and the changes of the four seasons.
In this exhibition, the artists who has expressed the beauty of substances and phenomena that shape the natural world through their own sensibilities will express the feeling of the season as the flowers bloom and calm spring shifts from the winter when the dead trees blow.
We hope you will experience the “Shapes of Element” created by each artist with all five senses through the encounter with the work.
Profile of C-DEPOT
C-DEPOT is a group of about 100 artists who produce work in various genres including painting, three-dimensional work, video, photography and media arts. The group was born in 2002 to express the awareness of contemporary issues shared by artists of the same generation from their perspectives.
Based of the philosophy of “ART=Diversity”, we continue to create a bridge between the artists and society, and propose and put into practice through independent activities how to return the compensation earned through expression activities to society.

The theme of Sato Sugamoto’s works is the diversity of thoughts.
It’s the attempt to visualize the inside of our heads, of either one or more persons.
She uses colorful strings to express humans’ thinking circuits that intertwine in many ways. The numerous lines entangle, in independent and complicated ways. This, to her, looks beautiful.
She describes the different personal values of one or many strangers by the beauty of the colorful lines.
