ABIKO INTERNATIONAL OPEN-AIR ART EXHIBITION 2015
« TROPICAL TREE » Multimedia installation & Performance
The theme for the Abiko festival will be a free adaptation of the 1960`s play Tropical Tree (Nettaiju) by Yukio Mishima.
Drawing an imaginary landscape the project is wishing to extend the horizon to several themes and allegories associated with the tree such as: memory, the family, the dichotomy between reason and passion, and order against chaos…
In a parallel way to Yukio Mishima`s quest for identity, the Tropical Tree, endorse a spontaneous dialogue between Japanese and European artists.
