Exhibition page: CASHI will be holding Senri Shisui’s solo exhibition “Filthy Resistance” from June 28th (Friday) to July 27th (Saturday). Shisui is an artist born in Gifu Prefecture in 1998, and is enrolled in the Oil Painting Laboratory at the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts. At the 2021 Tokyo University of the Arts Graduation Works Exhibition, we exhibited the installation “Itadaki”, in which a large-scale painting that would normally be a graduation work was covered with a large simple white wall that imitated the walls of an atelier. , won the Salon de Printemps Award.
Shisui says that her works are always trying to resist.
However, this resistance is not active like demonstration activities, but by hiding the meaning and individuality of the work with white wall-like cubes and boards, pushing it in, and sandwiching it, it seems as if it is hidden from the public eye. It is expressed as if to be avoided.
We would like to invite you to take this opportunity to take a look at the gentle resistance that she and her works attempt.

*Artist statement*
An object pretending to be neutral that appears in public. It appears in front of your field of vision. While blocking something and putting pressure on it. At the edge of my vision, I faintly see something. But, well, it’s hard to see.
Did those who were blocked or oppressed wish this to happen? I wonder if that’s what you want. What would happen if there were no
obstructing objects? I wonder what it looks like. I wonder how it will look.
“Useless resistance.” These words were uttered by Mr. Matsushima of CASHI during the initial meeting for this exhibition. Think about this word.
First, let’s talk about resistance. When you imagine resistance, you also imagine pressure. “Resistance” appears when a smaller force opposes a larger force. So, is this “resistance” something we are doing or being forced to do? Where is the subject?
Actively “resist”.
“Resist” passively.
Actively “do not resist.”
Passively “do not resist.”
And instead of just “resistance,” it is modified with the word “futile.” What does this mean? What is this nuance? The word “waste” has some negative connotations. Also, it’s probably being used here in a slightly self-deprecating way.
For example, when you draw a picture, a certain kind of uniqueness and originality is born. I always feel more or less anxious about its uniqueness. When that anxiety becomes too great, there are times when I feel like denying my own work. Therefore, I hide the surface of the painting with a neutral object (even if it’s temporary). Of course, if you place an opaque object in front of the picture and hide the part behind it, that part will no longer be visible. If you hide the surface, you won’t be able to see it from the front.
However, a painting that acquires a mask of neutrality may succeed in diluting its original uniqueness, but at the same time it transforms into something else. The temporary neutral mask stands out strangely, giving it an unnatural presence.
Block the line of sight. Pressure.
Look to take a detour. A scene that went wrong.
No use, no use. Resistance is futile.
