This project, ‘PARIS/TOKYO － UPGROUND, FOREIGN SEEDS’, organized by TOKYO-ARTS aims to broaden recognition of both Japanese and French artists by providing show opportunity in Tokyo and Paris.YAMAMOTO GENDAI will be exhibiting works by Jimmy Owenns. Works and lives in Rouen France, Jimmy Owenns is one artist who successfully represents online a slippery multiple practice across dimensions as well as disciplines.
Owenns describes him/herself as “an artist without sexual identity” － though of course that leads one to ponder nothing but. Owenns’ fleshy work is disorientating, slick and freighted with desire and its concomitant loss. She has some some exquisitely delicate and menacing drawings of furniture in bondage and also works with photography and video.
