Twenty at The Dazed Gallery

Kounosuke Kawakami brings together the most creative minds of his generation

The Dazed Gallery is proud to present work from some of the most exciting young artists currently working in London and Tokyo. Curated by St Martins graduate and widely exhibited artist Kounosuke Kawakami, Twenty explores themes of melodrama and melancholia in work that ranges from Kounosuke's own eerie and deeply atmospheric landscapes (that explore “the multilateral relationship between urbanism and nature”); Kentaro Kobuke's nostalgia-inducing, strangely child-like portraiture; Matt Franks's idiosyncratic take on the disposable nature of modern culture; Akiko Takizawa's warped, alien landscapes; Christian Ward's psychedelic inner landscapes; and Stine Ljungdalh's theatrical explorations of the human condition. All the work challenges pre-conceived ideas and notions about the subject matter it addresses, and to say that the exhibition covers a wide range of mediums is an understatement – anyone who steps through the doors of the gallery will find themselves within a nucleus representative of some of the most profoundly imaginative minds of our generation.

October 2 – November 5, The Dazed Gallery, 112-116 Old Street, London EC1V 9BD
