Yutaka Inagawa Curates “Another Pair of Eyes” At Duddell’s
Why We Recommend it
Japanese artist-curator Yutaka Inagawa features 28 artworks from the collection of Jehan Chu,
Michael Xufu Huang, William Lim and Cindy Chua-Tay that experiments on balancing discreet and obvious protagonists that resonate with a cultural cohesion.
Yutaka Inagawa (b. 1974, Tokyo) works with artworks from the collections, alongside Duddell’s existing elements. Paintings, prints, photography, sculptures and personal objects from the private collections are placed at Duddell’s to interact with its dishes, tableware, furniture and architectural/ interior spatial considerations, all acting as agents for an immersive cultural experience. Guests are encouraged to take the important role as protagonists, bringing their own stories and histories. Together, all combine to form an orchestrated polyrhythm.
When selecting what artworks to include, Inagawa considers a holistic landscape that create a sense of new interconnection among the all protagonists within the collections, the restaurant/ bar environment and sculptural pedestal. Unlike the usual white cube space, the dominant décor and textures at Duddell’s make a chemical reaction with each artwork.
