Feb. 3-April 22
Since its establishment in 2006, the “Shiseido Art Egg” has been a set of annual solo shows for the finalists of a public-entry art competition. For its 10th anniversary, the exhibition is featuring the work of installation artist Yoi Kawakubo (Feb. 3-26), photographer Gabomi (March 2-25), and wood sculptor Ayano Nanakarage (March 30-April 22).
Kawakubo is known for working in the radioactive districts of Fukushima, where he developed buried film to visualize radiation energy, Gabomi experiments with photography to find new means of expression, while Nanakarage’s wooden works portray natural objects that often refer to changes in nature. The winner of these three finalists will be announced at the end of May.
