Banana as Art! Make Art with a Banana?
An art exhibition, “Banana as Art! Make Art with a Banana?”, will be held at the ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE. In order to offer the best quality in all aspects of a banana, including sweetness, fragrance and texture, the banana is usually grown by taking the essence of cultivation techniques that repeat a process of selecting different varieties and locations for cultivation. Thus, the banana itself has earned praise the world over as a form of art. This exhibition features banana sculptor Keisuke Yamada, who creates works of art by making sculptures out of bananas and using the beauty of colors and shapes of bananas as material. The banana will be showcased from various perspectives, including ingenious Yamada’s works on exhibit, along with his demonstrations as well as an explanation on the process from the time bananas are produced all the way to when bananas are imported to Japan.
Families will be able to enjoy the exhibit based on the theme of bananas during Golden Week.
