Exhibition: Koki Tanaka at Frieze Projects New York / New York, NY

05/09/2014 - 05/12/2014

Japanese artist Koki Tanaka turns common objects and seemingly banal actions into reflections on the passage of time and the organization of everyday life. At Frieze New York - which the artist describes as both a social place and a market place - Tanaka will insert a series of incongruous presences, inviting representatives from the 'invisible communities' that inhabit Randall's Island to spend the day at the fair, carrying out activities that are not usually performed at Frieze.
