Takahiro Iwasaki sculpts miniature landscapes from unexpected materials. Bath towels, electrical tape, toothbrushes and human hair transform from the mundane to the extraordinary. Drawing on Japan's industrial history, Iwasaki recreates factories, ferris wheels and radio towers that present a snapshot of a bygone era. Far from being glamourous monuments, Iwasaki's sculptures are melancholy, recalling the late trauma of warfare, and more recent natural disasters in Japan that have left a psychological imapact on contemporary audiences.
