About this exhibition
Hisachika worked in my studio for about a year. It was a collaboration of conversations and human and artistic contact. Hisachika left my studio. After some months, I saw his work. I think his work in this show presents structural maturity and it secures his artistic future.
Lucio Fontana, 1967
When I saw Hisachika's paintings in the dim light of the warehouse, I was stunned by how fresh they were. And, as their flower patterns seemed to begin to glow, I made up my mind: I would like to have his 1967 exhibition tour, to time travel in a way, from Wide White Space, Antwerp, to WIELS, Brussels.
