Exhibition of Yeka Haski “Plastic Party”

Free

UltraSuperNew Gallery is honored to present ‘Plastic Party’ a solo exhibition by Yeka Haski, a Tokyo based mixed-media artist, that has held exhibitions all around the world, including Japan, Russia, South-Korea and Mexico.

While on a surfing trip, Yeka experienced swimming in a sea of litter on the beaches of Bali. Inspired by this episode, Yeka has strived to find ways to talk about the topic of waste. In this solo exhibition, she integrates her whimsical characters on discarded materials like plastic bags and objects creating art pieces that explore creativity in new forms. In repurposing materials, she instills a renewed significance into “trash” and in doing so, stirs a conversation about how we consume and produce waste today. Yeka will display small to large scaled paintings, one of which features ’blue sheets,’ a plastic mat commonly used during picnics in Japan. In painting on the ‘blue sheets,’ she transforms a generic material, often turning into quick waste into a work of art. Utilizing the allure of her art, she encourages her audience to have conversations about the environment and how we can start living “cleanly”.

The Opening Reception will be held at the UltraSuperNew Gallery in Harajuku with welcome drinks and sound performance by Ugene Yujin creating magical music with his voice.

The exhibition will begin with the opening party between 7pm and 9pm on the 21st. Over the weekend it will be open from 12pm – 7pm, Mon – Thurs from 10am – 7pm and on the final day from 10am – 3pm.
