ARTIST'S INTRODUCTION / STATEMENT
From February 7th (Thursday) to February 23rd (Saturday), 2019, Sora Goto and Ayaka Toyoshima are exhibiting "Anabota Moto".
Goto, who is active both in Japan and overseas, uses threads to create geometric sculptures and installations, and Toyoshima pursues performance expression through his own body centered on ikebana.
Just like the Swahili title "Anabota Moto," which translates to "looking at the flames of the bonfire, I feel vacantly enraptured...", we hope you will enjoy this exhibition of works by the two artists who feel the rhythm of the natural world and sublimate their own expression.
