Shoso's work at BOAA till 6 November 2018



Plastic Tainai Kuguri by Shoso Shimbo at The Mining Exchange, Ballarat as part of BOAA till 6 November 2018.

This work focuses on the issue of plastic pollution. The installation, made of plastic waste, invites viewers to interact with the work and was inspired by the Tainai Kuguri (passing through the womb) in Japan. Tainai Kuguri is a rite of passage through a site such as a cave or the interior of a Buddhist statue symbolising rebirth and a fresh start.
