In the heart of Tokyo’s Ginza district, the light-filled exhibition space of Le Forum lends itself to unique encounters with contemporary art. Housed in the glass-brick building designed by Renzo Piano, Le Forum is directed by curator Reiko Setsuda, who oversees a demanding programme of alternating exhibitions by Japanese and international artists.

The 2022 programme at Le Forum opens with the exhibition “A Quiet Sun” by Kazuna Taguchi, who was born in Tokyo in 1979 and lives and works in Vienna. Here the artist proposes a hybrid corpus of sophisticated prints and found photographs. Her works are created by first superposing different photographs of her own paintings and sculptures and then overpainting these images in oils, before photographing them once more in black and white. The artist likens the multiple strata of her successive plastic interventions to the work of a painter who returns tirelessly to their easel. Alongside these pieces, found photographs that the artist collects are also presented. At times, she restores these images and even integrates them into her own pieces, introducing an element of chance to her work. Between anonymous memories and mythological imaginings, the exhibition “A Quiet Sun” plays out in the natural light of Le Forum, which delicately reveals its fleeting presences.
