David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by Yutaka Sone, on view at the gallery’s 533 West 19th Street space. This will be the artist’s fifth solo show since his first exhibition at the gallery in 1999.

Working in a wide range of media—predominantly sculpture but also painting, drawing, photography, video, and performance—Yutaka Sone’s work revolves around a tension between realism and perfection. The artist originally trained as an architect and an almost obsessive attention to detail and its relationship to a larger whole underpin his practice at large.

Yutaka Sone was born in 1965 in Shizuoka, Japan, and studied at the Tokyo Geijutsu University. His work was recently the subject of two solo exhibitions in Tokyo: Yutaka Sone: Snow at Maison Hermès Le Forum in 2010 and Yutaka Sone: Perfect Moment at Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery in 2011. In 2009, Baby Banana Tree, the artist’s 25-foot tall hand-painted sculpture, was installed as a major public artwork at the Boone Sculpture Garden, Pasadena City College, Pasadena, California. Other recent solo exhibitions include the Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art, London (2007); Kunsthalle  Bern, Switzerland; Aspen Art Museum, Colorado; The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago (all 2006); and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2003). The artist represented Japan, along with Motohiko Odani, at the 50th Venice Biennale (2003).
