WONDER SEEDS is an open call exhibition aimed to select and sell potential works of young artists at a venue. This program was designed in 2003, to support young artists following the concept of "BUY = SUPPORT"; giving an opportunity to connect young artists and art lovers/collectors.
Selected entries of accessible small works (paintings, prints, illustrations, photographs, etc.) from all across Japan will be displayed and sold.

At WONDER SEEDS, not only young artists will learn the notion of selling their artworks, but also art fans will experience the awareness of art ownership.

As for 2017, the works of 67 artists were chosen out of 334 entries.
We will present new 80 artworks chosen from a large number of entries for WONDER SEEDS 2018.

Tokyo Arts and Space Hongo
Artist:
IMAMURA Fumi

WONDER SEEDS 2018 Workshop will be conducted by an artist, IMAMURA Fumi (Participated in WONDER SEEDS 2010, 2013), who uses plants as her motif in her creation, such as by cutting small flowers drawn with watercolor on craft paper and constructing them in a space. In the workshop, participants will make their original flowers of which colors and shapes are imagined from some plant seeds and the characteristics of the plants. Why do not you imagine freely from one grain of seeds and make wonderful flowers bloom? The work will be completed when you come up with an original flower name and a language of the flower. Let's try designing your own flowers out of your imagination.
*Available only in Japanese.

TOKAS (Tokyo Arts and Space) launched the TOKAS Residency program in 2006, offering creators of various genres and nationalities the opportunity to live and work in another country, welcoming them to Tokyo or dispatching them to overseas destinations. This exhibition presents works by creators who participated in the TOKAS Residency program in 2017.


In our daily lives, we adapt almost unconsciously to our surrounding environment. Our bodies act out everyday routines by accepting and incorporating various constant, quasi-permanent factors, such as geography, culture, customs and the zeitgeist.

By participating in a residency program, the eleven artists introduced here intentionally placed themselves in unfamiliar environments, and gained experiences and insights that deepened their understanding of their own viewpoints and attitudes. When they output these interpretations in visible form, each adopting their own distinctive approach, the behaviors and actions they have internally accumulated and processed are externalized, and engage with others to construct new relationships.
