SHOW STATEMENT

Lacoste/Keane Gallery is excited to present Goro: Expression in Five Forms, a solo exhibition with the contemporary Japanese ceramic artist Suzuki Goro, November 2 –26, 2019. To coincide with the opening of this exhibition, the artist traveling from Japan will give a public talk about his works and motivations on Sunday November 3th . Suzuki Goro is an internationally renowned artist who began his career as an artisan potter. His life changed when he came in contact with pop art in 1969 after a fruitful trip to the USA. Returning to Japan, he set out to be an artist with full expression and individualism. This resulted in the innovative “Goro” style which embodies the spirit of the Momoyama period Japan 1573 -1615 (characterized by free expression and eccentricity) and his own expressions. In this exhibition, we have thoughtfully curated his five famous forms Chawan, (tea bowl), Mizusashi (water jar), Sake Bottle, Sake Cup and Bento Box. Each is an instrument for expressing the “Goro” style of sensual and amusing expression. Some may observe that the title of this show shares the number five with Goro’s name which means fifth son and this we consider as fortuitous. “This is an extremely rare occasion where we can show Suzuki Goro’s definitive and exceptional works expressed in five of his famous forms – Bento Box, Mizusashi, Chawan, Tokkuri and Guinomi. Even rarer, Goro will be at our gallery to attend the Opening reception and give a talk. This is certainly a not to be missed special exhibition that we consider a highlight of the gallery’s history.” LaiSun Keane
