Amano Takashi “Nature Aquarium” Exhibition
8 November 2017 – 14 January 2018
Gallery AaMo is a cultural space opened in April 2017 at Tokyo Dome City, which holds a series of lively exhibitions combining art, media and entertainment. This unique gallery will host the first large-scale exhibition in Japan featuring the worldly famous aqua-landscape master Takashi Amano and his “Nature Aquarium”.
A deep forest underwater… A beautiful, mysterious garden in a large fish tank… Amano’s artistic renditions of nature have attracted many fans and admirers around the globe. This exhibition highlights the “aquascaper” Takashi Amano and 11 works of his nature aquariums, including a tank specially prepared for the occasion.
To understand further the creative universe of Amano, his photographs of magnificent cedar trees of the primitive forest on Sado Island, Niigata Prefecture, will be on display (Amano is also a prominent photographer).
