Idea Code 21098

Published with an exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, this catalogue captures how eight artists look towards, engage with, and perceive nature. What relationships connect people with nature? How might these relationships be perceived as ambiguous? While celebrating the connection between people and nature, the various approaches also harbour an innate fear of our being a cause for distress when this harmony is out of balance. Works by the eight artists – Keisuke Yamaguchi, Mika Aoki, Yusuke Asai, Nobuhiro, Izumi Kato, Shimura, Kana Kou, Masato Kobayashi, and Ai Sasaki – were installed in an Art Deco-style building, creating a remarkable dynamic.
