Following its successful launch at their home base in Los Angeles, Chariots on Fire presents a new chapter in the Tale of Plant & Pot show. The first showing of these specially commissioned, one-of-a-kind pieces, unveiled the natural alchemy of potter (Adam Silverman / LA) and horticulturalist (Kohei Oda / Hiroshima) at work. With this second installment, Chariots on Fire lead you on an adventure through Gion and Nishijin, two of the most historic parts of Kyoto.
The exhibition locations, often in traditional machiya townhouses, provide an intimate backdrop, taking cues from the environment. The spontaneous nature of browsing amongst the various locations provides a chance to respond to the work in each environment, not so much site-specific as site-empathetic, random pleasures, accidental viewings, new tastes, sights and smells add a sense of discovery to the pleasure of viewing the work.
