Junko Yamamoto MArch ’17, a founding principal of iVY, was selected to exhibit her installation work at Nakanojo Biennale 2023, an International Contemporary Art Exhibition in Gunma, Japan. The Biennale invites artists from Japan and abroad to exhibit their works at around 40 different sites in Nakanojo, attracting over 400,000 visitors each year. Her work used more than 400 sheets of kitchen-produced bioplastic and gelatin glue. Persimmon tannin, traditionally used as paints, stains, and dyes in Japan, was used to create color gradation. The exhibition was open for a month, from September 9th to October 9th, 2023. You can learn more about Junko’s work on her website.
