Youtarou Hino / Shayne Bowden



After exhibiting at tetra in 2004, painter Hino Youtarou expressed interest in participating in the 'one against' series. He did so on June 25th 2005 painting live before a crowd of about 40 people. For about an hour and a half Hino painted about 10 panels on a 1st floor wall while tetra member Shayne Bowden produced sound from cassette field recordings.
Hino continued work on the paintings throughout the next day.
This event received both praise and criticism from those in attendance. While some were impressed by Hino's work and the spectacle of the creation of an artwork, others expressed dissapointment that Hino had compromised quality and integrity for the sake of a show/performance.

"one against 1"

Atsushi Suzuki / Kappa



one against series
This is a series of events planned to be held at art space tetra starting from June 12th 2004. The basic concept is for an artist and musician to appear at the same time in the same space on the 1st floor of artspace tetra. Within a specified time, a live music performance and the creation of an artwork will occur live before a paying audience. The finished artwork will then be exhibited at tetra for a period thereafter. One of the aims of the series is to make public the actual making/execution of an artwork and or music performance. Artists and musicians will set up/souncheck before the audience. The artists/musicians may collaborate or they may totally ignore each other. All space is open and no space is to be relegated prior. The audience will see the physical completion of an artwork.
