RICOH ART GALLERY is pleased to present S.F. (Splash and Fragments), a solo exhibition by Teppei Kaneuji. In his practice to date, Kaneuji has taken his motifs from familiar and commonly used tools, various everyday objects, and figures, disassembling and reconfiguring them into novel two- and three-dimensional artworks that conjure forth entirely new contexts.
This exhibition includes work that was presented at the Yumiko Chiba Associates booth at Art Basel Hong Kong 2021 and will be shown for the first time in Japan, alongside new pieces created in collaboration with the Ricoh art project StareReap. Kaneuji’s works, which detach things from their old contexts and encourage us to adopt new ways of looking at them, deftly transcend our stereotypes and material fixations to form fresh relationships.

In Kaneuji’s practice, all objects have the potential to become materials. The more familiar the object is, the greater the disquiet when it is detached from the everyday — or rather, it is here in this recontextualization that something intriguing appears. Employing collage, Kaneuji breaks up the time and space we unconsciously perceive through things as well as the roles that have conventionally been assigned.

The 2.5-dimensional printing made possible by StareReap lies between the 2D and the 3D, freely moving through the artwork from 2D to 2.5D or from 3D to 2.5D, or able to become, through the variance of texture, both more and less than 2.5D. The material transforms how it exists, the meaning that we take away also then changing.
What will these motifs, detached from their contexts and with their identity as materials altered, demand of us? What will we see? Visit RICOH ART GALLERY to engage with these questions together with Kaneuji Teppei.

―Teppei Kaneuji
I approached this project with Ricoh as a forum for experimentation, to feel out their new StareReap technology and locate where its features might intersect with my own work.
You could say that StareReap is almost an inverse of the sculptural relief techniques of antiquity, which sought to imprint work with the vestigial marks of space and circumstance. In this sense, perhaps StareReap is a new mode of relief for the modern age.
Reassembling extant images, materials, and somatic sensations in an imagined alternate dimension, I think the result offers a new exploration of the textural crests, troughs, reality and fiction. (from “Artist Statement” for this exhibition)
