I will seed ideas like I seed the forest.

A few years ago, I made up my mind to create the forest in Vendee, countryside in France.
When I remembered why I struck on this idea,
I realized that I would do the same thing as I'd ever done in art.

Art is came from seed of thought, the forest is created from seed of the earth, too.
Both make my head more and more flexible, and make me take new action.

In the exhibition, I will do a lot of drawings of a forest of ideas and a gigantic tree going over ages.
I will explain on videos agriculture and "seed of thought" that I think of.

Fabrice Hyber

The head made of cauliflowers, the eyes made of lemons, the hips made of green peppers and bananas and the legs made of cucumbers, it is a pleasent "vegetable man".
Who created this work is Fabrice Hyber, the artist now representing France for his revolutionary concepts and original expression.

The word is "seed and grow".
Seed is the metaphor of thought and behavior to create art works.
And it also means origins of actual vegetables and trees that is getting bigger, grown by the power of the earth.

In this exhibition, Hyber tries to sow many and various seeds in Tokyo.
