"Experimentation is a crucial part of my making and it often informs me of what to do next." Yusuke Aonuma, Tokyo Midtown 2018 grand prize winner
Yusuke Aonuma gives a presentation on his art projects and current works. His exhibition, "Experiment and Awareness," on view in the Commons Gallery, Art Building, UHM. He is using local plants and seeds as part of his work. He asks visitors to help him create one of his artworks.
This exhibition highlights the work of Yusuke Aonuma, grand prize winner of the Tokyo Midtown 2018 annual art and design competition. Aonuma uses dandelion ("tanpopo" ã‚¿ãƒ³ãƒãƒ ) to form three-dimensional geometric and architectural structures.
"Cities undergo constant renewal. Their cityscapes change with time, and have always brought changes to the time we spend and the places we spend it in. But no land was ever created to become a city. A city is the result of an expansion that happens with repeated construction and demolition of buildings. I planted the fluff from dandelions to express this constant renewal. Tiny, delicate buildings fervently stand up, and eventually become a city. Even if they fall down, they can be reborn if someone replants them. Cities do not belong to any one person, they constantly renew themselves with time."
Born 1989 in Nagareyama, Chiba Prefecture. Lives in Tokyo.
