(Temple of Heaven, China)
48 x 48cm (framed)
AKI INOMATA’s work includes many collaborations with animals. Her Why Not Hand Over a “Shelter” to Hermit Crabs? series, in which she gives hermit crabs shells made with a 3D printer, brings to mind migrants, refugees, and their ability to swap nationalities. In this photography piece INOMATA made a shell which takes a form of Temple of Heaven in Beijing, then let a hermit crab in to live in the shell.
