This event has ended.
Misa Hiramatsu creates dramatic installations which evoke the specter of death through the transformation of everyday waste, pointing to the
grotesque side of existence. Mayumi Tanabe meanwhile calls upon that sense of dizziness experienced when the weight of our tired body urges itself upon us, directing the formation of sculptural space through the melting forms of wax and vaseline. Here both artists call upon our physical senses in the processes of melting and rotting, as a metamorphosis assailed by the unknowable agent of time.
