Botech Compositions: New Work by Macoto Murayama
5 July - 26 October 2014, Liverpool
During Liverpool Biennial 2014, Metal is delighted to be exhibiting the work of Macoto Murayama. Based in Tokyo, Murayama spent six months of 2013 living and working at Metal’s space in Southend on Sea, dissecting, recording and rendering in digital form UK indigenous flowers.
The resulting works are presented at Metal’s Liverpool base, Edge Hill Station as a series of high definition, animated sequences of fastidiously produced information and detail that reveals the beauty, fragility and architectural structure of flowers.
