 We are glad to announce the start of our collaboration with Pantone Hotel and have decided to mark the beginning of our partnership with the two days exhibition and the vernissage on the roof top terrace with 360°degrees view on the centre of Brussels. Situated in cosy Saint-Gilles with numerous art nouveau buildings and indie galleries, Pantone is paying a great deal of attention to its interior design with the emphasis on colours, the principle its name (“Pantone” – well known system for matching colours) brings to the forefront.

On April 7th “Scratch/Thread” will invade the whole 8th floor of the building occupying its white cube type of rooms and stretching to the open terraces while enveloping both sides of the roof. It is an attempt to transform the space using aesthetic key-elements in the work of two Japanese artists: action of carving or eventual trace of a scratch in paintings of Cousteau Tazuke and stretched or suspended threads in installation of Akane Yorita. 
 
While working on the borderline of painting and sculpture, Tazuke carves acrylic planes, paints them with vibrant colours and then exposes their back side. As a result, he brings the third dimension and engages a strong tactile feeling in the process of viewing paintings. Scratch here is a formative element that creates a line, but in the same time a physical mark in our perception of the work.
 
Meanwhile, Yorita follows her line by using threads to create suspended installations of a delicate nature and always in light motion. Her artworks change its shape with the breath of wind, while inviting the viewer to enter and be touched by her net-work.
 
In the upcoming show the line of Yorita’s thread will meet with the line of Tazuke’s scratch and although in two different media they create synthesis following and transforming each other. “Scratch/Thread” Exhibition generates on the roof of Pantone a semi-transparent cocoon we invite our guests to step in, while enjoying from high above the city view of Brussels.
Cousteau Tazuke, The work with acrylic resin surface 2015.09.19, acrylic resin, acrylic paint, alkyd paint, 45x31cm, 2015
Akane Yorita, The Catenary Drawing, 180x1400x10cm, rayon threads, 2017

The event will be accompanied by ambient/techno music to create the out-of-this-world atmosphere and reveal the concept of the show and aesthetic qualities of exhibited visual art in another media and in audio dimension. Techno record, as we know it, is a sequence of scratches on the vinyl plate (the tactility similar to Tazuke’s works) and the touch of the needle creates the consistent and unwinding audio-thread of techno track.
