Koji Ryui's practice is based upon the subtle and sustained transformation of commonplace materials. Working intuitively, Ryui invests these humble things with an almost mystical quality, sometimes underscored by wry humour. In this cluster of assemblages, Ryui's minimal gestures open out an array of associations between the banal and cosmic, inert and animate, micro and macro.
