4 seasons series
SPRING 春 regenerate
Space Design By KENGO KAWAGASHIRA
"Spring, which can be said to be the beginning of the four seasons, begins with “early spring” when the energy stored in winter slowly exudes, and the beautiful but sometimes hazy “middle spring” is sent along with the mountain scenery in full bloom, and “late spring” comes by the time the flowers fall. Installation in the middle of gallery space, which is abstract and multidimensional and creates this series of spring transitions, changes the way you feel and the relationship with the surrounding artworks, depending on the viewing angle and viewpoint.
Composed of multi-layer translucent fabric, this installation is intuitively reminiscent of "spring" due to its softness and fragility, and digital projection on the fabric layers enhances the phenomenal spring transition in the gallery space."
