Somewhere? Genbi Hiroko Kubo “Anthropocene” @Evidence Gallery【Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art】
Somewhere in the town, you and Genbi suddenly meet.
While the museum is closed due to renovation work, the work will be exhibited at the Evidence Gallery along Peace Boulevard. As the second installment, I will introduce Hiroko Kubo, a writer living in Hiroshima City. In recent years, while interviewing prehistoric art, folk art, and theories of cultural humanity, Kubo has been creating works on the theme of agriculture and idols using materials familiar to daily life. The scene where something familiar to our eyes is launched with a large sense of scale by Kubo's hand is a masterpiece. This time, we will develop a huge picture scroll in the shop window using blue sheets as a material.
