As the second in the series of “Dokokade? Genbi,” this exhibition introduces a Hiroshima-based artist, Hiroko Kubo. Kubo researches prehistoric art, folk art, and cultural anthropology and creates her work using everyday objects. She turns our familiar materials into a gigantic sculpture that creates a spectacle feeling. This time, the artist uses a plastic sheet to create a large-scale picture scroll in the gallery.
