Atsuo Okomoto: Faraway Mountain
Japanese stone sculptor presents 12 pieces sculpted from same block
This article is from 2010.
The first UK solo exhibition by Japanese stone sculptor Okomoto showcases the technique of ‘war modoshi’, or splitting and returning, and features 12 pieces sculpted from the same block which can then be pushed together to reform the original piece. The artist also has work on display in Gayfield Square Gardens, created using a drilling technique, leaving the final artwork vulnerable to the natural light.
Corn Exchange Gallery, 561 7300, until 30 Sep (not Sat/Sun), free.
