This exhibition is an exhibition that gives you a sense of what a ``comfortable space'' that coexists with nature is now, as the concept of homes and offices has changed during the several years of the coronavirus pandemic.
As people are restricted from going out, I think an increasing number of people want to place something in the place where they and their loved ones live that will give them the ``awareness'' to love things for a long time and spend time self-reflecting. . Among them, art with nature motifs, such as terrariums and bonsai, has become popular during the coronavirus pandemic, and many people are probably picking it up.
In this exhibition, we will once again focus on art that allows us to feel the touch of nature and think about the earth's timeline, and will display works that change the density of our daily lives.
The key to enjoying this exhibition is the works that express the dynamics and delicacy of the natural world, including nature and creatures that can only be seen here. I consistently express the beauty of nature by using the components of the natural world such as moss, wood, soil, and water. In addition, you can enjoy works and expressions of various scales in one space, such as terrariums, bonsai, pottery, and photographs, including works that sublimate cell-scale concepts into works.
