This event has ended.
‘Troposphere’, the title for this, Okamoto’s first solo exhibition in six years, is originally a word from meteorological terminology to refer to a part of the atmospheric layer surrounding the earth in which cloud formations occur, and within which rain, snow and thunder are created.
Okamoto offers the novel interpretation of this word in that it constitutes ‘an atmospheric layer in which the fundamental energy of life is always flowing’, and has endeavored to unite this sense with her own artistic practice.
