Tony Coote has been invited by curator Mark Stiles to be part of an exhibition called Japan: Australian Perspectives to be held at the Willoughby Incinerator Art Space at 2 Small St Willoughby from 6 May to 24 May (open Wednesday to Sunday 10am-4pm).

Tony’s particular interest in things Japanese comes through his association with the Sydney Zen Centre and the building of its retreat centre, Kodoji, in the Macdonald valley near St Albans.  Construction of the complex started in 1984 and has been built mostly by volunteer labour.  It is an ongoing project and will feature in the exhbition.  Tony will talk a little about Kodoji and the influence of Japanese Architecture on Western architectural forms as well as the influence of some Japanese ideas on his own work.
