Hisao Hanafusa: Borrowing Nature’s Powers

September 14-November 5, 2022
Opening reception: Friday, September 16th, 6-8pm

Hisao Hanafusa: Borrowing Nature’s Powers is a solo exhibition of the Japanese-American artist’s most recent projects Cosmic Memory and Fifth Dimension, as well as examples of his highly acclaimed carpentry works. The two projects re-introduce Hanafusa through the East Asian way of borrowing nature’s strength and making it one’s own. Although the method of using natural processes to complete the work has been present in his work since the 1960s, it has never drawn significant attention. This exhibition foregrounds this methodology of power borrowing, and offers the audience an intrinsic and essentially philosophical way of understanding Hanafusa.

The exhibition is curated by Dr. Tingting Xu, the Arnaldo Momigliano Postdoctoral Scholar in the Division of Humanities at The University of Chicago. An exhibition catalog will be published, including Dr. Xu’s introductory essay and her interview with Hanafusa.
