Mitsunori Kimura is a sculptor creates works by wood carving and oil paint modeling. He picks up the motifs of his works from daily moments of humor and unexpected intimacy.

In this exhibition titled “double story”, Kimura installs with 500 carved wooden cats' noses on the wall, and the wooden sculptures capturing the back shots of animals.

“Overlapping the aspects of myself and the animals. The faces of those animals are imaginable but not known. Maybe they are double images of myself. And I can get closer to those animals.” - Mitsunori Kimura
