Zhulong Gallery presents Azuma Makoto - Shiki: Landscape and Beyond opening reception
Japanese floral artist Azuma Makoto will debut his internationally acclaimed sculpture, Shiki I, in his upcoming exhibition Shiki: Landscape and Beyond.
Makoto’s shiki I, a 5-foot "timeless pine tree" encapsulated by an open steel frame, will be suspended in mid-air, surrounded by large-format photographs, shot by Azuma’s collaborator, Shunsuke Shiinoki; illustrating its almost 10 year path around and above the globe. The exhibition will include new photographs of the Shiki in extreme landscapes that these plants would never naturally occur as well as documentary footage in a digital format.
Following the opening reception, running 7-9 pm, the exhibit will be on display through December 5. Zhulong Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am-5 pm.
