An exhibition where works by combining traditional Japanese style and contemporary motifs, presenting humorous works one after another, and continuing to attract attention in the art scene, Takeshi Yamaguchi continues to display works throughout the Noh theater "Yamaguchi Hajime" daytime shura "will be held from January 19 (Saturday) to March 23 (Saturday) 2019 at Yokohama Noh theater in Nishi Ward, Yokohama City. This exhibition, Yokohama Noh Theater planning performances "tasteful and impermanence - Shura ability of the world" to those together. Under the theme of "Shura", besides displaying installation works in a space usually used as a Noh theater, related painting works are also displayed. Yamaguchi is a place that tends to draw attention to paintings, but this time it will be an exhibition that demonstrates its true sense as a "contemporary artist."

In the works of Noh, there are many songs called "Shura Noh (second thing)" that draws human suffering and sadness against the background of Buddhist thought while drawing the state of a battle with Genpei warlords as the protagonists. . On the other hand, Kei Yamaguchi uses a bold expression that transcends space-time, depicting works of horse-shaped motorcycles and medieval warriors such as battle figures. This time, I pay attention to this point. Under the theme of "Shura", the installation works will be exhibited in the seating area of Yokohama Norakuda and the space normally used as a reception venue, etc. The paintings of are displayed. Along with the extraordinary space of Nohgakudo, it is a way to enjoy the work world of Yamaguchi Yamaguchi.
