Human and Animal runs May 28 - July 3, 2022
Today the boundaries between the spheres of painting, sculpture, design and craft have become increasingly blurred. Not only in Japan but also in other countries artists are reengaging with clay as a medium, exploring its broad and varied sculptural potential.
This exhibition, focusing on human and animal forms used as artistic motifs since the earliest of times, features approximately 100 clay works by five important artists: Beth Cavener (USA), Kim Simonsson (Finland), Susan Halls (UK), Stephanie Quayle (UK), and Yoshitomo Nara (Japan). The artits breathe life into clay through a dialogue with the medium, creating unique forms of human and animal. We invite you to enjoy the vanguard of clay art.
