Yo Shimadu (シマジヨウ) Exhibition at Gallery.B Tokyo (ギャラリービートウキョウ) - (2012/04)

This exhibition (2012/04/16-21) by Yo Shimadu (シマジヨウ) at Gallery.B Tokyo (ギャラリービートウキョウ) consisted of the carved out root sections of large tree trunks (apparently obtained from construction sites), the concept being carving out one ring at a time, until he had reached the first years of the tree.  Looking in the reflection, you see/imagine a tree rising...  この展示会は、逆さまの木の根を... 以下の通りです!  Video/動画: [A] [B]
