Nogueras Blanchard presents the first solo exhibition in Spain by Japanese artist Shimabuku (Kobe, 1969). The exhibition From high in the sky to the bottom of the sea (from the top of the sky to the sea) is articulated around two projects in Barcelona and Japan. Shimabuku work extraordinarily imaginative tell stories, where the event or encounter that happens in public space defines the main artistic intention.

To become an octopus, 2005, it is a giant vat of mud installed horizontally on the floor. Shimabuku welcomes you to the mouth of the jar making us feel like a captive octopus. At the bottom of the barrel, a video monitor shows the work Then, I Decided to give a tour of Tokyo to the octopus from Akashi (then decided to take a tour of Tokyo Akashi octopus), 2000, a trip made by Shimabuku and an octopus from the fishing village of Akashi to Tokyo. After the tour, the octopus is returned to the sea where Shimabuku hopes to share its experience with other octopuses.

The second proposal is a video projection showing the performance Sketch to make Shima fly – Barcelona,
