Japanese, 1933 — 2014

For more than fifty years, the rigorous and radical artistic practice of On Kawara has focused on his relationship with history, the passage of time and its impact on existence. His conceptual works mix in particular newspaper articles, maps and paintings, and obey each to a very specific code of conduct.

Starting in 1966, On Kawara developed several working methods he followed simultaneously, such as the project “I Went” in which he documented all his journeys between 1967 and 1978, or the project “Today”, intimately linked to his daily life. The question of remembering permeates all his works, which fall in a quest to capture the essence of time and space.

Essential actor of the conceptual scene next to Sol LeWitt or Joseph Kosuth, On Kawara has been featured in an important personal exhibition at the Guggenheim in New York in 2015. His work was first shown by the Pinault Collection at the 2016 “Accrochage” ("Hanging") exhibition at the Punta della Dogana.
