“VESSEL-XYZXY” (2016) is a piece created by Taisuke Koyama for the first time to focused on ‘body’ as a motif. This series produced in collaboration with Japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa and derives from the performance piece “VESSEL” by Nawa and french/belgian choreographer Damien Jalet. In this work, Koyama explored whether a reality exists wherein ‘the body as vessel’ has been transformed into a digital image, using the 3D scanned data of performer’s bodies. Specifically, Koyama finely adjusted the angle, position and lighting of the 3D data in the space simulated by the 3D modeling software. The captured image of simulated data is then printed out and re-scanned with handheld scanner. In the group exhibition “AICHI TRIENNALE 2016 TRANS DIMENSION”, Koyama exhibited 18 pieces of 6.6-meters-long prints of this series. The title ‘XYZXY’ refers to the coordinate axes of a two-dimensional image and three-dimensional space. This book is co-published by Paris-based RROSE EDITIONS and taisuke koyama project. The prints has a shiny appearance because it’s printed in richly silver and black ink.

A rubbish bag is a disposable bag used to contain rubbish. Such bags are useful to line the insides of waste containers to prevent the insides of the receptacle from becoming coated in waste material. Most bags these days are made out of plastic, and are typically black in color.

G/P gallery is pleased to announce Taisuke Koyama’s solo exhibition “Generated X” from January 6th 2017.
This exhibition will present an updated version of the installation belonging to the photography and video series “PICO” that was shown in Koyama’s well received exhibition “Generated Images”, held at the Daiwa Foundation Japan House Gallery on April 2016 in London. In recent years, Koyama’s work has focused on the ‘experience the images’ and it is for this exhibition that an installation exploring the viewer’s physical interaction with images has been developed. This exhibition will also exhibit the work “VESSEL- XYZXY”, which was previously exhibited at the “Aichi Triennial 2016: Trans Dimension” and was created in collaboration with Japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa, as well as the work “Light Field” which explores the possibilities for photography in the post-digital era.
From 2014 to 2016, Koyama lived and worked in London, England via the Japanese Government Overseas Study Program for Artists sponsored by the Agency of Cultural Affairs. Currently he lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Since moving to Europe, Koyama has had solo exhibitions in Zurich and London; and has participated in group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles and Milan. In 2015, Koyama was invited to participate in “PLAT(T)FORM 2015” organised by Fotomuseum Winterhur, Switzerland. In addition, the photo book “Rainbow Variations” (2015) was
created in collaboration with Swiss designers duo MAXIMAGE, was published by Artbeat Publishers, and the Swiss publishing house Kodoji Press. In 2016, Koyama participated in “Japan Media Arts Festival in Aomori” (Aomori Museum of Art, Aomori, JP, 2016); “Aichi Triennial 2016: Trans Dimension” (Okazaki Cibico, Higashi Okazaki, JP, 2016) and collaborated with CAMPER to create a collection of limited edition products. Koyama is currently working on projects for the near future.
With a background in biology and natural environmental studies, Koyama’s work explores the possibilities of image making in the post digital-era. Please take this opportunity to discover Taisuke Koyama’s work.
