About the Exhibition

Nanakarage Ayano (1987-) crafts wood sculptures using motifs found in the shapes of withered branches, shriveled banana stems, and dried plants. Nanakarage’s works, inspired by her meditation on natural phenomena such as rainbows and mist, and the time lived by plants and animals in forests, mountains, and the sea, evoke complex emotions in viewers concerning life, beauty, and ugliness.


A series introducing rising young artists in a solo exhibition format. Artists and curators together formulate an occasion for the exhibition, thereby opening the door to new endeavor in the future. Highly-anticipated artists are selected without regard for their nationality or production methods.
