An exhibition of 10 sculptures by French artist Emeric Chantier explores Chinese blue pottery and Japanese Ikebana in ways that seek to highlight the interlinked history of man, nature and the future of the natural world in the face of climate change. China and Japan have been world leaders in producing porcelain works for generations and greatly influenced European earthenware designs. The artist uses human, animal and botanical forms to explore ideas from ancient Japanese culture, such as the prevalent sentiments of apology and courtesy. His striking and elegant works feature deconstructed replicas of porcelain vases from China and Japan filled with small Chinese elm trees with roots and shoots shattering their way through the holders, emulating the boundless forces of nature.
