Gallery Pictor では202173日(土)~725日(日)まで、ユキ・ホワイトの個展 -To be Different- を開催いたします。


本展の企画は、ユキ・ホワイトがニューヨーク滞在中に制作した ‘Intermingling’ シリーズが起点となっています。Intermingling は、質の違うもの同士を混ぜるという意味のmingleと、「相互に」を意味する接頭辞 inter から成っています。混ざり合うのは人と人、アイデア、感情、素材など様々です。mingleはまた、パーティや交流会などで人々がランダムに会話したり一緒に何かを楽しんだりすることにも使われます。

本展では ‘Intermingling’ シリーズに新作 ‘Its OK to be different’ を加え、私たち一人ひとりのユニークな存在とそれによって構成される多様な世界に目を向け、力強いメッセージを発信します。




今回の展覧会では、「違っていて良い」(It’s OK to be different)というメッセージを送りたいと思います。この展覧会のテーマは多様性です

We are pleased to have Yuki White Solo Show -to be different- from July 3, Saturday through July 25, Sunday.


The planning of this exhibition has been started from the concept of ‘Intermingling’ series which Yuki White produced when she was living  in New York. The verb Intermingle consists of the prefix inter which means “mutually” and the verb mingle which means to mix different things together. People, ideas, emotions, materials….variety of things can be mingled. Mingle is also used for people to have random conversations and enjoy something together at parties and social gatherings.


Differences can be a source of frictions and barriers for our society, but it is also true that the mixture of different things has developed our society by creating new things and ideas, or solutions to problems. Now that the world is facing various common challenges, we can use each other’s differences as a reason for cooperation rather than frictions.


This exhibition consists of ‘Intermingling’ series and the new work ‘It’s OK to be different’. These works will send a powerful message by making us look at the unique existence of each of us and the diverse worlds that consist of them.

Artist Statement [ Read all statement ]


In this exhibition, I would like to send the message that It’s OK to be different. The theme in this exhibition is diversity.

I believe diverse society is healthier and stronger because we can deal with drastic changes and complicated difficulties by cooperating each other. Diverse society will also help to create new things and solutions, invented by people with different and unique experiences. Diverse society will also help to create new things and solutions, invented by people with different and unique experiences.
