Reiichi Namatame, “Future garden” Town Installations / Program chosen from “Open Call Project”

5/26(Sat) 10:00 - 5/27(Sun) 18:00
Planter of Roppongi Crossing, Roppongi Hills Mohri Garden
[Participation fee]
This work is comprised of two glass installations set in different locations. The first will be in the planters at Roppongi Crossing, where the pieces themselves will assume plant-like forms that glow in vivid colors. The second will be at the Mohri Garden in Roppongi Hills, where the mysterious works, unyielding to the surrounding forces of nature, will inhabit the space as futuristic lifeforms, creating a fantastical impression. These works share much in common with the city of Roppongi and its ability to evolve with the times, but also call attention to issues of looming environmental crises.
