ICED FLOWERS by Japanese botanical artist Makoto Azuma (previously) is a beautiful visual and aural installation in which flowers are encased in a block of ice and left to melt over the course of time. As the ice melts it combines with the leaves, stems and petals creating a natural music together.
This exhibition presents “ICED FLOWERS”, a work to observe the changing life of flowers that are locked in ice. Flowers will show unique expressions that they do not display in everyday life, by placed under such a different environment. Please enjoy how flowers and ice change themselves over time in the ruins far from human’s existence – it is an inorganic space that makes a vivid contrast with flowers.
