New Exhibition : Akio Onishi -persona-

June 27, 2023

N project is pleased to present -persona-, a solo exhibition by Akio Onishi, from July 7 (Fri) to July 30 (Sun), 2023.

Akio Onishi (b. 1996) graduated from the Faculty of Design of Kyoto Seika University and is currently based in Tokyo. While working in the timeless genre of portraiture, he skillfully incorporates the anonymity of contemporary society and the visual imagery of consumed objects into his work, creating paintings and video works that allude to the loneliness inherent in a communication-deprived world.

Persona is titled after the concept proposed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), which describes the external face an individual presents that is different from their true self, a kind of mask that corresponds to the roles they are expected to fulfill in society. The exhibition will showcase an installation of new paintings, as well as a video installation reminiscent of a hypothetical persona that refers to the artist’s own upbringing.
