UZU

10:00am – 7:00pm
Free

UZU can be defined as a “swirl” in Japanese. In this exhibition, the swirl becomes a circle—as life in humans and nature runs along the cyclic path of death and rebirth. The unconventional duo created a parallel between the evolution of life of both humans and plants, highlighting the transience of human life and, by doing so, glorifying every single moment of it. The artists achieved this by combining visual art and physical installations in a unique mix that puts the spectator at the centre, inviting them to reflect on and accept their destiny, and share what they learned with the generations to come. This is what keeps this virtual circle in perpetual movement.

Sante Visioni will showcase six paintings, which represent the result of his research on what people can learn from the plants’ world throughout their life. Mitsurin Tokyo will present a complex installation revolving around the evolution between different lifetime periods and embracing the paintings. By bringing both artists’ works together, the parallelism and rhythmic flow in both worlds become apparent.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
