Beyond the Farthest Plane - 最遠平面の向こうへ
This exhibition is the collection of artworks by a group of five artists, inspired by reading and discussing Jakob von Uexküll and Georg Kriszat's text, "Streifzüge durch die Umwelten von Tieren und Menschen: Ein Bilderbuch unsichtbarer Welten". ('A foray into the worlds of animals and humans ; with, A theory of meaning.')
These artworks were the individual creations of the artists, and were based on their personal interpretations of von Uexküll's work. The presented collection is enriched with writings and sketches showing the development of the artworks and the artistic process involved in creating each of them.
