Gojing-Maru Hayashi, “GO FLIGHT AIRSHIP”


5/25(Sat) 11:00 – 5/26(Sun) 6:00, 11:00 – 18:00
Roppongi Hills Keyakizaka Complex B1F
[Participation fee]
Inspired by our fascination with the sky and aspiration to fly, Hayashi conceives projects that use aircraft as its primary motif. GO FLIGHT AIRSHIP is a six-meter length blimp on which images of the daytime sky, taken by the artist, are projected as it floats above. Expressing the various emotions that one feels when looking up in the Atrium, the airship is a screen that allows visitors to share their feelings with others.
*Due to the nature of the work, we recommend viewing at 23:00 – 6:00.
