'外見 • Foreign Views' a solo exhibition at ITbM Gallery.


From August 23 – September 25 Nagoya based Dutch artist Denise Buisman Pilger, will present her unique view of the familiar urban landscape in a solo exhibition titled: ‘Foreign Views’, at ITbM Gallery (464-8601 名古屋市千種区不老町 名古屋大学トランスフォーマティブ生命分子研究所 ITbM Gallery, 1F). The exhibition features some of the artists’ most recent works, in which she presents a series of condensed memories of her travels.

‘Foreign Views’ will be the inaugural exhibition at the ITbM Gallery that is located in the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM), whose aim is to create cutting-edge science with potentially significant societal impact. “By adding a gallery space, we want to remind people that science and art go together. I believe that every scientist is an artist that gets inspired by nature and the environment that they are in.” says Gallery Director Dr. Asraa Ziadi.

“I feel incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to share my work with the wonderful people of Nagoya. My recent move from Montréal Canada to Nagoya Japan has been very inspiring and I am very excited to include some of my newest, Japan inspired pieces, in this exhibition. I love to show the audience the beauty of their everyday environment and Japan definitely has a lot of beauty to offer!”
