We are pleased to have Taishi Hatayama Solo Exhibition The Way to be Objective from Saturday, 18th June  through Friday, 15th July.

Hatayama has consistently tried to depict “something like an atmosphere that cannot be seen with the eyes but can be felt within the body and mind.”

His approach to production seems to have been based on subjective sensation, and he also said, “I feel a sense of crisis that in today’s society, the emphasis is on being objective, and we tend to lose sight of our own sensations and the movements of our own hearts and minds.”

His works, however, provide viewers with an objective perspective that makes them aware of the interrelationships and linkages among the many living and nonliving things that surround humans.

In this exhibition, Hatayama will present a new challenge to the world of “as it is” by reexamining the positioning of subjectivity and objectivity in light of Shiki Masaoka’s objectivity.



Artist Statement


The haiku poet Shiki Masaoka says, according to the book Microcosmos II: A Small Revolution for the Ears written by Shinichi Nakazawa, that to be objective allows us to see the world “as it is,” beyond the subject-object integration.

I have been trying to focus on the sensations that arise within me, to avoid being too objective, in order to approach the most vivid dimension of things. It was to value subjective experience and perception. On the other hand, Shiki tried to realize seeing the world in its naked figure through objectivity, devoid of subjective feelings and thoughts. I feel empathy, though it is presumptuous, for the fact that we tried to see the world in a similar way, even though the process is different.

Subjectivity and objectivity are not mere dichotomies; subjectivity leads to objectivity, and objectivity leads to subjectivity. In the midst of this circular motion, the world “as it is” may come into view.


Taishi Hatayama

Taishi Hatayama Short Biography (See details)

Hatayama explores the idea of the unseen “atmosphere” and “presence” that we feel in places of nature, and attempts to turn these physical sensations into concrete visuals. His works represent an intangible world, guided by what he calls “primordial perception”, a form of sensory perception our physical bodies are inherently equipped with.

In 2014, Hatayama received both the Outstanding Performance Award and the special jury prize (Kohei Nawa Award) at the inaugural CAF ART AWARD for his signature white-toned paintings. The artist’s practice incorporates a range of motifs including the idea of umwelt, or the world as experienced by particular organisms, in relation to various natural phenomena; networks formed by plants and diverse bio life; and a new form of nature in the contemporary era that incorporates digitality and AI. 

He completed a MFA in painting at Tama Art University in 2017. Born in Kanagawa, Japan.
