Shibunkaku is pleased to present Ishikawa Kyuyoh at Art Basel Hong Kong 2024. While leaders of the avant-garde calligraphy movement in the postwar period, Inoue Yūichi and Morita Shiryū, pursued the realm of “letters,” here Ishikawa delves into the essence “words.” Through his work, Ishikawa captures the swirling essence within language, presenting it as a living expression above all else. Representative as the “this moment” in calligraphy, Ishikawa’s works secure themselves as a peak in the rich and ceaselessly flowing history of writing. These pieces challenge conventional constraints that calligraphy has endured within Western contexts. Delving into the core principles of calligraphy, Ishikawa’s works redefine the fundamentals and resonate profoundly in a time where many are breaking free from the confines of established concepts and Western-centric narratives. We are delighted to unveil Ishikawa Kyuyoh’s creations for the first internationally in none other than the vibrant city of Hong Kong.
