ISE Cultural Foundation is pleased to present a solo exhibition, “Emotional Echo: Separation — sound and light installation by Takafumi Ide–”.
“Quietly intense and beautifully realized, Takafumi Ide’s exhibitions focus on his personal experiences. Choosing a single “keyword” that signifies his essential emotional state, Takafumi develops his conceptual and visual ideas into something that is simultaneously both personal and universal. The resulting installations offer the viewer a full sensory experience that is profoundly moving. By projecting his feelings and memories into his work, Takafumi creates work that is consistently elegant and immensely satisfying”.
