SUZUKI Yasuhiro Quantum Apples

Inter+Play is the Towada Art Center’s ongoing three-part exhibition spanning two years from its opening on July 23, 2020. SUZUKI Yasuhiro’s work Quantum Apples will be on display throughout the entire two-year period. Suzuki has designed Quantum Apples with tree rings that resemble ripples in water, and he reimagines the top of a stump as a pool of water that reflects its surroundings in a mirror-like fashion. Up until now, seven stacked apples—each bigger than the other—represented an afterimage effect of an apple falling from the sky to the water’s surface.

As we begin the second part of Inter+Play on June 22, 2021, these seven apples will become one for a limited time only. Suzuki has superimposed the time axis of the exhibition onto that of the apples for this half of the exhibition, leaving a single apple at the water’s surface, with no explanation of how it arrived there.

How did this single apple arrive at the stump? Where could it have fallen from? Where did its afterimages go? Could they be locked away inside the apple itself?

Let your imagination run wild as you appreciate Suzuki’s work in a new light.
