Yusuke Nakano - Paramodel Paradoxical Reading, Plastic Paratext
|Author||Yusuke Nakano E.a.|
Japanese artist Yusuke Nakano’s art book compiling 10 years of his work elusively pieces together nostalgia and things in decline, with an artist’s appreciation for texture. With vivid representations of his exhibitions, installations, models, tableau, and blueprints, his interest in architectural drawing as a preliminary step for reality is a major theme. Personal reflections written by the artist and contextual articles by contributing authors add great depth. Nakano forms half of the “art unit” duo Paramodel, together with Yasuhiko Hayashi. They are known for their creative installations which feature toy trucks, bright solid colours, and imaginative spaces that reinterpret construction sites as fantastic locales.
