In 1968, in a park in Japan, artist Nobuo Sekine and friends dug a hole 7 feet deep and nearly 9 feet wide. They didn't have permission, but no one official noticed until they'd molded the removed earth into a cylinder of the same dimensions and placed it beside the hole. Sekine says when they finished working, they stood and stared: "The power of this object ... rendered everybody speechless." In the garden of Culver City's Blum & Poe gallery, Sekine has dug another hole and again placed the removed earth beside it. The show, "Requiem for the Sun: The Art of Mono-Ha," features this and other ambitious, ambiguous sculpture from postwar Japan. 2727 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through April 14. (310) 836-2062, blumandpoe.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Feb. 25. Continues through April 14, 2012
