The exhibition will be held a little earlier than the Art Night period. We hope you will come to Roppongi to see the work.

Free of charge.

A mixed-media installation centered on a mirrored dodecahedron over 1 meter in diameter, the
work is composed of glass, ironwork, plants, LED lighting, sound, and other elements.In this
work, Shuku, a mysterious ancient deity from various parts of Japan, is represented as a
modern-day possession of a “cyborg deity” that mixes natural and man-made objects, organic
and inorganic, human and other species without boundaries.
“SHUKU” is the work by “Maquis”, an artist group of indeterminate membership consisting of Maki Ohkojima, Yosuke Tsuji, and Muneaki Donald Kuyama. In addition to Ryuhei Moriyama and Keikiyo Takemata (wood and lacquer work) and Rafael Zarazua (glass), San-ei Ironworks is participating in the production of the ironwork.
