“CODES OF CONDUCT” Coding Bodies, Decoding Digitality
Group Exhibition
Jupiter Brown, Souya Handa, and Clara Scholtz
Curated By
Karen Karuna Sibuya

4 December - 16 December 2018 


CLEAR GALLERY TOKYO is proud to announce “Codes of Conduct,” a group exhibition of new works that reflect on what is means to “code,” featuring movement diagrams by performing artist and writer Jupiter Brown, computer-based installations and objects by Souya Handa, and gestural paintings of deep-sea spectrograms by Clara Scholtz. 

From “code” as social norm and implied binary (zeroes and ones) to “code” as protection (encoding, encryption) to “code” as codification and systems of categorization, what does it mean to aestheticize objectivity?

「コーディング」の意味を問うアーティストたちによるグループ展、「行動のコード」展を開催いたします。コーディングは情報の体系化·隠匿化·保護などを目的として行われ、日本語では符号化、またその対義語としてのデコーディングには復号という言葉が使われます。 また「コード」および「コーディング」が表すものには符号化や暗号化だけでなく、社会のルールやカテゴライズ、物事の明文化も含まれます。

Unlike the design course, the design course was full of geeks but inside was like myself who entered by mistake, and every day to listen to music

It seems that even the picture path is about to be closed, and starting to start live painting without starting something is a turning point
