“Don’t Ask Why the Crocodiles Spin” exhibition by Tamura Satoru

Aug 27 - Sep 24

MAKI Gallery and TEZUKAYAMA GALLERY are pleased to jointly announce Don’t Ask Why the Crocodiles Spin, a solo show by Tochigi-based artist Tamura Satoru. The presentation focuses on Tamura’s spinning crocodiles—a key part of his practice for almost 30 years—and follows his well-received solo exhibition at The National Art Center, Tokyo (Roppongi) in June 2022. A total of over 1,000 rotating crocodiles will fill both spaces in Omotesando, Tokyo and Minami-Horie, Osaka, creating an explosion of color and motion that envelops the viewer with its surreal dynamism. Despite their motorized movements, the crocodiles possess a distinct warmth and personality; each one is hand-crafted by the artist himself and given a unique name. We welcome you to enter Tamura’s whimsical world, where the natural and mechanical collide to form a nonsensical yet captivating phenomenon.
