This event has ended.
The “Ocean of Trees” that forms the exhibition’s title is a major piece Nemoto has been working on for over half a year since May 2017,which at 333.3 x 788 centimetres is almost exactly the same size as Pablo Picasso’s Guernica. The site of its creation was Buckle Kobo, a corner of Suda Ironworks on the island of Keihinjima in Tokyo’s Ota Ward. Amidst the reverberating echoes of hammering and sharpening of steel, this work was created as an ongoing development of Nemoto’s “Guernica Project”. The work was first exhibited in conjunction with the “Iron Island Fes” which took place on Keihinjima on 1st October this year. Despite the relatively brief exhibition period of 12 days, we invite you not to miss this precious opportunity to view this epic work “Ocean of Trees”.
