Finished solo exhibition in my hometown

In the last month, November 1st to 28th, my exhibition was held at small book store + cafe "BOOOK" which is in the department of technology of Tohoku University in Sendai/Miyagi, Japan. That city Sendai is maybe the biggest city in Tohoku area in Japan, but there is almost no cultural things, only 1 small but good record shop Store 15NOV exists...
The exhibition have been held as series under the name "PARASITE ART PROJECT". The director Akiyama (he is great designer even though I hate almost designers in Japan haha. He loves experimental music! ) directs the works of the artists to be parasitic in the store, but other artists could not do that. But I succeeded to do that. My 100 collage works succeeded to parasitized 9 book shelfs.
The title of my exhibition was "replacement and unreadability" as volume 5 of the series.

I chose 100 collages from about 150 sheets of works. They are the rest of entire 244 works I made last year. I amazed at about 100 sheets had sold so far! In Hong Kong? In Taiwan??

The exhibition was actualized by his offer through the record shop owner Aoyama (He is also artist who works with Otomo Yoshihide to make stunning installation to use large amount of old record players)'s introduction. Aoyama introduced me to Akiyama. That's the honor to me.
I chose 100 sheets by using random numbers outputted by my easy computer programming. And I decided the replacement order to use another programming with variable probability. After that I exhibited them on the shelfs. They might had been nocuous for the store. But we were satisfied about the result! Thank you Akiyama-san and Aoyama-san. Also thanks Ichikawa-kun and Kato-kun for helping to exhibit.
The 2 scores of that are above as samples.
