Shotaro Yoshino – artist born in Tokyo. A graduate of Sculpture Major at Tokyo Zokei University. He works as an assistant at the Saitama University of Education. He exhibited his works in galleries, museums and alternative art spaces. His work reveals the invisible memories of a given place, by literally drawing out a fragment of the earth. These works contain the social memory of the Earth, provoking the viewer to reflect on the influence of man on nature. The artist, through his works, ponders on the relationship between people and places, introducing this connection into everyday consciousness. The earth makes up layers of time, so the artist in his works shows the accumulated memories, which have ceased to be visible over time, not only geological one, through their extraction above the surface.
