YODOYA & GALLERY TOMO are please to present PARASOL a solo exhibition of works by Yoji Kondo at this Golden week. “PARASOL” is a title of Kondo’s first short movie and is a love story for all who had lost the face. Among all the matter, according to cosmology although it accounts for 5 % of whole universe, we human has been finding many meanings and mysteries in the face. Like “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo da Vinci, Acephale by Georges Bataille, the face by Emmanuel Levinas and No-Face by Hayao Miyazaki, various efforts about the lack or the other in the face had already been conducted. It is gradually hard to have sincere emotion and express that directly because of the developed surveillance system, the chain of loneliness by too much individualism, the lack or saturation of the meaning itself and so on. In our living world such like that, perhaps you also have a face that you never show anybody or nobody knows. A man and a woman in this short movie is also losing their emotions. One day, however, Mr. PARASOL emerges in front of them and then the circumstances facing them changes completely. A parallel story with which a parasol connects. Hope you like it.
