We are pleased to announce that Takashi Kuribayashi will hold his first solo exhibition in Japan at the Towada Art Center, where his large-scale installation Sumpf Land is on permanent display. Based around the theme of water, this exhibition will display a wide range of works both at the museum and throughout the city of Towada. It will primarily include new large-scale installations and video pieces.
Kuribayashi has consistently focused on the relationship between humankind and nature, and has long dealt with with the theme of boundaries in his work.
Since the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, our views of nature have undergone drastic changes. We hope that you will enjoy his new solo show and that it will give you a new appreciation of the environment and the intrinsic sensitivity of humankind.
Trip Museum will be on display starting Saturday, July 7. A beautiful installation of ice and cedar, the piece takes you on a trip of Japan, from Towada to Nagasaki. It will be displayed next at Umi Festa in Hiroshima from July 14 through July 29.
