Discover 1GB a group exhibition by young artists!
A “GB” (gigabyte), is a unit representing the capacity of data. It has become a pregnant term in our lives.
For this event, “1GB" is set as a common language to unify artistic expressions. In the digital age, 1GB is a very small capacity, so small that it can be an inconvenient to the creation. This frame gave psychological and physical restrictions to theses artists who had to challenge themselves and condense their expression. We hope this 2 days only event will give you an opportunity to rethink your quantitative and qualitative values.
While many exhibitions are put online, this limited time event is a chance to reconnect with the reality of physicality and to discover the experimentations of young artists who capture the world from their own spectrum and raise problematics to shape tomorrow's world.

“Trouble Agency” is a collection of 5 individual animation artists who collaborate remotely from various locations in Asia, USA and Europe. TOCHKA, Xinxin Liu, Kaoru Furuko and Takashi Uchida create collaboration works using their individual tastes in storytelling, animation skill sets and expressions. The animation techniques vary between 3D, stop-motion, cut-out, light drawings and paintings. As a collective but also as individuals, they ask feedback from each other for creative stimulation and seek for chemistry to happen, as well as aim to enhance their skills and ideas by bringing them into new technology and expand into something that only a joint force can achieve together.
