JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles, the Japanese cultural destination in Hollywood, has launched its upcoming exhibition “Life Cycles: A Bamboo Exploration with Tanabe Chikuunsai IV,” on display through Oct. 22.
In his first-ever Los Angeles exhibition, renowned Japanese contemporary artist Tanabe Chikuunsai IV pushes the boundaries of the bamboo art form with a site-specific, immersive bamboo installation, constructed with 10,000 woven bamboo strips held together with tension. Visitors can engage with the dramatic, soaring form, viewing it from multiple angles as it twists and winds across the gallery.
