Ends in 8 days

“Bivalvia” is the Latin name that was given by Carl Linnaeus (1707-78), who is referred to as the father of taxonomy, to molluscs with a shell consisting of two hinged parts. Yu Araki was fascinated by the European flat oyster shells that he found while walking along the beach in the Galician region of Spain. The unevenness of the shell’s surface, formed over a period of many years, is a feature officially termed “sculpture.”
In this exhibition, the first in the Bivalvia series, Araki will present new video works and photographs on this theme that were shot in Spain and South Korea.
