We were lucky enough to catch a preview of the Tanabe Chikuunsaii IV piece, Connection, last night at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. Each of his pieces is made of hand-split and woven strips of tiger bamboo, only grown in one of Japan’s prefectures. At the end of each exhibit, the structures are disassembled and the bamboo strips are taken with him to be turned into his next piece. This exhibit is viewable in SF until mid-August, along with a Tattoos in Japanese Prints exhibit which also just opened today.
