“Bridge of Plants” is the maximum level one as a plant sculpture by Makoto Azuma. There are three works of bridge-like shape exhibited in ARK HILLS. A lot of kinds of plants are planted on the surface of them, and the round external seems like a huge "Insect". The exhibition period makes a clear distinction to the past works due to the exhibition period of a half year this time, though Azuma has already created some works on the concept of the growth or the withering up to now. The work can be viewed for 24 hours, and you would notice the remarkable change of the expression according to time if you visited to it in the morning, daytime, and the evening. What growth and transfigure does the plant show in this half year? Unreasonableness wants not to be said because the material is a plant, and to enjoy limited time by me though only such a work wants you to exhibit when permanent. I expect only such a work to be exhibited permanently. However I know it is impossible since it is a plant, and thus will enjoy it in the limited time. By the way, please be careful that the closest station to the venue is not Roppongi but Roppongi 1-chome and then Tameike Sanno. Otherwise you may have to walk long.
