Tommy Simoens cordially invites you to the reopening of the exhibition Yutaka Sone: Michoacán Report. After 4 weeks of hosting Yutaka Sone’s Chinese and Mexican studios in the gallery, we are opening the second part of the exhibition Michoacán Report, that will, among other works, feature the new sculptures they produced. The opening will simultaneously inaugurate our newly extended gallery. Together with Yutaka Sone, the Chinese studio carved a marble sculpture of a townhouse in Michoacán, Mexico – the building which houses Sone’s Mexico-based studio. The second marble sculpture is of a bonfire of the kind that the inhabitants of Michoacán light on a daily basis: the villagers continue to perform this ritual with dedication, while time has erased any memory of the custom’s meaning. The reed weavers from Michoacán produced Tropical Composition/ Banana Tree No. 7, a sculpture from vegetation sourced in the area surrounding Lake Pátzcuaro in Michoacán.
