In and after the 1970s, Leiko Ikemura (b. 1951) has moved from Japan to Spain, Switzerland, and Germany. Showing girls lying down, metamorphosis of animals and humans, or colorful landscapes, her works seem adorable and, at the same time, consistently express her strong will to build bridges between the East and the West. Presenting 100 pieces including paintings, ceramic sculptures and drawings, this is the first retrospective of Ikemura’s art in Japan.
