* Organizer’s comment *
“KAIKA TOKYO” was held for the third time this year.
AWARD, we received many applications for attractive installation proposals that skillfully take advantage of the museum’s spatial characteristics and atmosphere. It was particularly impressive that we received entries from a variety of genres, including not only two-dimensional works but also three-dimensional works and media works. During the previous two awards held during the coronavirus pandemic, works that were exhibited in our collection were exhibited at other museums after being selected, and we received inquiries from customers using our museum about purchasing works. Even after the coronavirus subsides, we hope that such opportunities will increase even more during the two-year storage and exhibition period, and we will continue to provide opportunities for artists to spread their wings.

■* About award-winning works and jury comments*
* KAIKA TOKYO AWARD 2024 Grand Prize “MASS” Tobari Hana*
・Jury Comment Yuji Akimoto
Mr. Tobari’s work is made of iron, and is shaped like a cube by intertwining countless thin pieces of iron. It has a mysterious, living feeling, as if it is being absorbed by the energy of a plant that seems to be growing without a track, and the contrast with the geometric form is interesting. It was a work that gave me a sense of quiet madness.
・Judge comment Junya Yamamine
Mr. Tobari’s works are created in such a way that they spread out from the center, and he said that he expressed the beauty of nature, but in reality we rarely find ourselves in the nature of a primeval forest. Nature that has been cut out like a hedge is often seen as “nature.” I felt that it was important to take what I had created as if it were nature and cut it into a square, artificial shape, and to have contradictory things coexist within one.

* “Transiton #Ophelia” Kurashiki Aya* / * Kurashiki Aya*
・Jury Comment Yuji Akimoto
Kurashiki’s work is a collage of scenes from Millet’s “Ophelia” spliced ​​together with images of adult actresses. While quoting historical works, it covers the way Japan’s adult industry is perceived from overseas and social issues surrounding women. His explanations were clear and easy to understand from beginning to end, and the size of the work was impressive, giving me a sense of the completeness of the work.

* “Apollo 11_Ham the Chimp” Atsushi Adachi* / * Atsushi Adachi* ・Judge comment Junya Yamamine
Mr. Adachi’s works are based on historical facts in which chimpanzees and dogs were sent into space. I didn’t wear a space suit because I don’t do extravehicular activities, but it is a fictional work based on magazines and newspapers from the time. He uses a method called “appropriation,” in which forms, materials, and contexts are layered to create a new context, and the details are outstanding, and I felt particularly passionate about collecting magazines and newspapers from the time.
