Yutaka Sone

ISLAND

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by Yutaka Sone, on view at the gallery's 533 West 19th Street space. This will be the artist's fifth solo show since his first exhibition at the gallery in 1999.

Working in a wide range of media–predominantly sculpture but also painting, drawing, photography, video, and performance–Yutaka Sone's work revolves around a tension between realism and perfection. The artist originally trained as an architect and an almost obsessive attention to detail and its relationship to a larger whole underpin his practice at large.
