19 April - 11 May 2013 Website launch Thursday 18 April 6 - 8pm Auction Thursday 9 May 7pm

82 Kingsland Road London E2 8DP


Flowers Gallery will host an exhibition of Jiro Osuga’s work to celebrate the launch of his new website Planet Jiro. A large projection of his new interactive site will be on view throughout the show enabling the viewer to experience the website while surrounded by his work. The exhibition will culminate in a live auction of the work featured in the show on Thursday 9th May. Built by Jiro himself, Planet Jiro immerses the visitor into a new and unexpected exploratory method of using the web. Frustrated by constantly encountering insurmountable and all too familiar formats to view artwork online, Osuga saw a potential in the World Wide Web as a medium to innovate a purely visual and interactive way of navigation. Visitors to Planet Jiro enter Osuga’s perspective on life; piloting by way of buttons and scroll bars. Upon clicking the planet’s London button the viewer is faced with a pictorial view of the city in which Osuga has been a resident for over thirty years. A choice of landmarks including Opera, Observatory, Park, Tube, and the Stadium transport the viewer to each place. Here, they are free to unearth further interlinking levels revealing paintings along the way; carving a perpetual journey through Osuga’s world. Accompanying the projection of Planet Jiro a selection of paintings will be exhibited in the space. Arranged to mimic a journey through the website, artworks will be London based and feature a variety of themes, sizes and formats. Flowers Gallery will host a live auction on the evening of the 9th May. For those unable to attend absentee and telephone bids will be accepted.
