Artist Debuting A New Series of Botanical Sculptures with Fungi & Precious Metal

Japanese botanical artist Azuma Makoto, debuting a new series of sculptures alongside a decade of iconic works at Chamber. The solo show, curated by artist Andrew Zuckerman, demonstrates Makoto’s relationship with nature through botanical artworks and installations that use living flowers and plants. Each of the six pieces comprise shelf-like fungi sourced from old trees, foraged from different parts of japan. Disembodied from their trunks, these raw natural resources have been combined with molten gold, platinum and copper, forming a hardened shell around the wooden shapes.
