The way Shinzo Fukuhara, ASSEMBLE, and THE EUGENE Studio circulate the value and address society that produce a synergistic effect by participating beyond the set belief of creations are similar. This exhibition for 100th anniversary of Shiseido gallery is collaboration of 3 of the artists. This way of archival exhibition is rare, and it will also be experimental because it passes through space and time. We believe this will be the thing for us to share Fukushima’s creative activity and thought, which was a century ago.
