Chimei Hamada Cage

It is a work made in the very early years of his career as a sculptor.

This work is titled “Cage” and made in 1983. Having the same theme, Elegy for a New Conscript: Cage was made in etching in 1978.

Beyond the invisible cage, that is an army, the hands of the young man reaching out for help are made in a large scale to express the strong desire.

It’s already been out of print, but we were able to get it for the first time in this 20-something years.

This work is mainly stored at:

Kumamoto Prefectural Museum of Art; The Tokushima Modern Art Museum; The Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura & Hayama; Komagane Kogen Art Museum; etc.
