In his fourth solo exhibition with Richard Koh Fine Art, Faris Nakamura identifies this crucial need to allow insects as a species to be considered and reflected upon.
X0X0 Skeleton features ten works exploring the overlaps between insect and human skeletal frames. How similar are an insect’s exoskeletons to ours? How do we evaluate ourselves as part of a larger nature? As an avid carer of insects over the years, Nakamura pays tribute to the majesty of an insect form using his sculptures as a pseudo love-letter and scientific study.
The exhibition combines research from both his interests in entomology and community groundwork, pushing the realm of installation with possibility, enduring care, and bug-eyed wonder.
