Nukeme Solo Exhibition "Glitch Embroidery"

Saturday, October 30, 2021 ‒ Sunday, November 14, 2021

Nukeme was born in Okayama Prefecture in 1986 and came to Tokyo after graduating from ESMOD Osaka School, an institution dedicated to apparel design, in 2008. In parallel with his work in fashion and advertising, he has been energetically producing artworks applying technology. One of his works won the jury selection award in the Japan Media Arts Festival held by the Agency for Cultural Affairs in 2012, and he was chosen to be a finalist in the YouFab Global Creative Awards in 2014.

Nukeme is active and produces works in a wide range of areas including collaboration with fashion brands, companies, and characters as well as advertising image direction, styling, music, and writing. While the supporting medium for his output is generally fashion items, he has always treated these items as a type of media and developed his art in various directions. He consumes large loads of information on a daily basis and repeatedly performs the cycle of experimentation and practice. His stance in so doing is reminiscent of the posture of a bot (an application or program that automatically performs programmed tasks and information processing). The artist Nukeme may also be characterized as an existence that quietly observes and embodies the waves of information in the present age, as if unable to discern outlines in the ever-expanding world of the internet.

This exhibition will display a group of works consisting of glitch embroidery, Nukeme's representative art. They are made by rewriting the binary codes of embroidery data fed to computerized sewing machines, to directly cause glitches in the movement of the needle. Here, the term "glitch" refers to the data or machine error/breakdown per se, or the state of data that are damaged but can still be reproduced (processed to provide output). Because the works are based on intentional disruption of data and output in a disordered status, the resulting shapes of familiar images and logos come out distorted and jar the minds of viewers.

We also plan to take orders for sale of various glitch embroidery works at the gallery. Make sure not to miss Glitch Embroidery, this solo exhibition of works by Nukeme.
