"Feeding The Immortals" By Taiji Terasaki
The stunning artwork and unusual imagery of Taiji Terasaki come to life in his debut solo exhibit in Downtown Honolulu. While visiting his wife's parents in Japan, Terasaki noticed the family's ritual of kneeling before an altar in the tatami room and making a food offering. The event and exhibit combine his search for a meaningful response to death with his unique artistic style. The exhibition includes mixed-media works with ceramic, photography, vapor projections, and video. The public is invited to watch the "Third Happening, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, on Tuesday, Aug. 22, at 1121 Nuuanu Avenue, next door to the Ravizza Brownfield Gallery at 1109 Nuuanu Avenue. A reception will follow in the gallery until 8:30 pm. The exhibit is open from 11am to 5pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
