Past Collection Exhibitions

The Collection of Shuzo Takiguchi “Tick-Tack my heart-the watch…”

January 9 - April 21, 2020

This collection introduces mainly objects and works attempted by Shuzo Takiguchi as part of his continuous series “Tick-Tack my heart-the watch…” as well as works of and presents from other artists he communicated with that were collected in Takiguchi’s study.
Takiguchi encountered surrealism and wrote poetry, authored excellent poetry essays and art criticisms, and was active as an energetic art critic, but after 1960 he began focusing on his own work. He created many works that utilize line drawing, watercolors, and a transfer method called decalcomania. Please enjoy the world of Takiguchi, who continued experimenting with not only words but also formative design expression.
