Paramodel was formed in 2001 by Yasuhiko Hayashi and Yusuke Nakano, both of whom graduated from Kyoto City University of Arts. Paramodel comes from the combination of “Paradise” and “model”. Although the unique talents and interests of these two individuals hardly ever intersect, they manage to work in parallel towards the same vision of constructing intricate models of Paradise using toy parts, like plastic train tracks and mini-cars. Engaging in this poetic, yet paradoxical practice of remodeling paradise, this art unit presents their visions in a variety of media, including installation, objects, animations, painting, sculpture, and photography.
