Lost Animals II
This event has ended.
Gallery Art Composition starts 2015 with a selection of young talents focusing their creativity on animal themes with second “Lost Animals” exhibition. Tomohiro Inaba, Haruka Kanamaru, Takeshi Kawano, and Hideki Tokushige are collaborating with the gallery for the first time. Joining them is Kurodo Tsuji, a highlight of the first show.
Hiroshi Tokushige’s “Bone Flowers” reveal their inner beauty through the photographic medium under the presence of Tsuji’s flying metal bat. These works are displayed in dialogue with pieces by two young sculptors. Haruka Kanamaru, who just completed her master’s degree at Tokyo University of the Arts, unveils original glass sculptures composed for the show. Tomohiro Inaba’s work is relatively unknown in Japan but very successful abroad, receiving attention at Tokyo Designer’s Week in Milan. He presents two new works. Last but not least, the visually shocking pieces of Takeshi Kawano are invitations to comprehend the devastating consequences of the global warming on animal species.
For the first time since the gallery’s opening at the Pier West Square building, Inaba’s monumental deer sculptures are installed in the main lobby. 2015 kicks off with a beastly energy at the lively Gallery Art Composition.
