This event has ended.
This exhibition features work by Takako Kikuchi, Ken Shiozaki Ken, and Ikumi Nagaoka.
Japanese sculptor Akio Omori, along with his studio, is currently working on the “Dainichi Nyorai Reproduction Project” to faithfully reproduce the statue of Dainichi Nyorai, which was destroyed by fire in 1486. It has been created based on the Toboki, a history of Toji temple in Kyoto and will be delivered to Sanuki Kokubun-ji Temple in Kagawa Prefecture. This exhibition will feature work by the three artists who are in charge of coloring for this project.
Additionally, after this exhibition, two more exhibitions featuring work by other artists from this project will be held. Last, but not least, will be the exhibition of Akio Omori himself.
