Exhibition

Yukihiro Akama: Basho no Kankaku – A Sense of Place 場所の感覚

9 March - 30 June 2024

With a National Art Pass you get

Free entry

A display of 55 works, Basho no Kankaku – A Sense of Place 場所の感覚 will be Akama’s largest exhibition to date.

The exhibtion will showcase a new collection of beautiful, intricately carved wooden houses of various sizes – from just 4cm (slightly bigger than a 50p piece) up to 106cm – alongside a series of architectural technical drawings and mini prints. All works will be for sale.

Akama creates these singular houses, carving each one from a single piece of wood. The wood often dictates the starting point for the designs, with the knots or grain guiding where Akama cuts and carves. Gradually they take on the appearance of a house – often low and long, or tall with stilt-like legs and large roofs, sometimes cantilevered out. Delicate and intricate detailing of clay render and pebbles minimally decorate and enhance the surfaces, adding to the overall effect of how precarious man-made structures can be and the now transient and perilous nature of so many people’s lives. Inspiration comes from many sources for these fantastic creations, but much comes from Japanese temples and shrines and particularly from Jomon-era ruins; the shapes, textures and surfaces used in this period of 4,000 years ago.
