Yebisu Art Labo is faithful to its name: it is a laboratory space for artistic experimentation. The exhibit “Iruikonin-dan” (“The Story of Different Kind of Marriage”) by Yui Suzuki is less for the public than for the artist, serving as a break for the evolving artist as she moves from paint into clay. The works, many of which are unfinished, portray an imaginary world of inter-specie chimeras using swirling, clashing pigments. There are several clay works too accompanying the magical scenery on canvas.
