MUGA | The colors of my maze

Titled [The Colors of My Maze], it’s an attempt to visualize the creative and thinking process behind MUGA’s work series, ‘Just a thin paper’, where the artist intends to tell a story of falsehood in photography. The exhibition reimagined and presented the series in a maze-like installation, by extracting arbitrary shapes and vivid colors from the original works. It welcomes viewers to take part in this playful but ironically open and transparent maze, delving into the artist’s subconsciousness where they would encounter works of joys and obstacles along the way before reaching the destination. MUGA is a visual artist with a primary focus on using photography as the creative medium. Now based in Aichi, once a professional snowboarder, after retiring as an athlete MUGA began venturing into the field of vintage fashion, whilst studying fine-art photography aspired to become an artist. With previous experience in exhibiting in group shows in Japan and overseas, [The Colors of My Maze ] will be his debut solo show. This exhibition is warmly supported by Hotel MOGANA, designed by Takashi Yamaguchi. Within the hotel it restores an old architectural style of Kyoto called “Unagi no nedoko”. MOGANA is a space where a traditional Kyo-Machiya meets modernity, with a delicate touch of contemporary art and craft.a
