Leiko Ikemura “Pioon”
This event has ended.
Leiko Ikemura offers up a sense of transformation imbued in the depths and surfaces of her sculptural work, showcased at Vangi Sculpture Garden Museum for the first time in 8 years. Here the lines of the countless drawings she made in the late 1980s, seemingly in the search for a chart of life, appear to undergo metamorphosis along with the terracotta works she produced at the same time, with heads springing two long ears in a “rabbit” form. The wild freedom which pervades these works seems to deign permission for their leap to the outside world, and here they gather in a collection of sculptures dating from the 1990s onwards and including the 3.4m high “Usagi Kannon”.
