Yukihiro Akama: Basho no Kankaku/A Sense of Place
March 2, 2024 - June 30, 2024

The Huddersfield-based sculptor brings 55 works ranging in size from one inch to more than three feet to Yorkshire’s 500-acre open-air park. Akama works with singular pieces of wood to create houses with clay and pebble-effect detailing. Each is inspired by Japanese temples and ruins from the country’s Jomon era—a period of history more than 4,000 years ago. The title speaks to Akama’s desire to create houses evocative of the bucolic landscapes in which he has found his calling as a maker, rather than his previous career as an architectural technician.
