'Aún Más Mañanas' (Even More Tomorrows) gathers bronze and ceramic sculptures as well as paintings by Japanese-Swiss artist Leiko Ikemura. Most of Ikemura’s work circulates around femininity and focuses on the hybridity of beings, captured in states between animal or human shape merging in with nature.
Blurring the border between species, between inner and outer worlds, Ikemura encourages the viewer to discover mystery in her narratives and turn them into something fantastic or, on the contrary, to keep them within the bounds of reality. The materials used by the artist - like bronze, clay or pigment - are closely linked to the earth, emphasizing the aspect of the human being as part of nature.
This is the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition Spain. It has been conceived by Javier Del Campo, together with the artist, and was organized in collaboration with Kewenig and the Ikemura Foundation, Berlin.
