Title is the land where the Solidago serotina got sterile as for "the allelopathy of the wasteland" and, according to Kurosaka of the curator of this exhibition, says to a characteristic called the allelopathy which a plant doing mackerel Eve has that I find the similarity with the characteristic of the cluster in the subdivided art of Japan and named it.

Plant - grass and tree - are surely valid while setting up a root. It may be said that the plant lives while facing environment even if there is any wasteland. Sense of values and the field of the modern art continue changing busily these days. And the relation writers to a market changes to call that.

In this exhibition, I introduce the writers who continue announcing it in various environment and examine the diversity.
