Masaomi Yasunaga

Masaomi Yasunaga

Pierre Marie Giraud is pleased to announce a new exhibition by Masaomi Yasunaga, starting on April 24th and running until June 1st, 2024.

While at University, Yasunaga established his creative direction at the laboratory of Satoru Hoshino, a coterie of the avant-garde ceramic group « Sodeisha ». While pottery is often made of clay and baked in a kiln, Yasunaga takes the form of pottery using glaze for his creations instead. Yasunaga masters creativity by combining unique raw materials such as feldspars, glass and metal powders, with his own methods such as creating glazed vessels with increased viscosity which are then pit fired in sand.

If Masaomi Yasunaga’s astonishing ceramic sculptures were parts of speech, they would be at once both nouns and verbs. They are extraordinary objects, tactile things with insistent, engrossing physicality. They are also so process-oriented, so action-driven, that they seem in some sort of continuous temporal motion, existing simultaneously in multiple tenses: present and past, conditional and subjunctive.
