Ohnishi Yasuaki produces large-scale sculptural installations that visualize the flow and volume of air, usually imperceptible to the eye. For the Art Night, he installs layers of undulating membrane made of translucent polyethylene that occupies an open indoor space. The work sways as it responds to the movement of the audience and the stream of wind, expressing the manifold countenances of the atmosphere.


Yasuaki Onishi

Born in 1979 in Osaka, Japan. Using materials that do not retain shape easily, such as polyethylene sheets and glue, he applies a delicate sensibility to trace the forms that lie at the boundary between human agency and nature to create his sculptures. He gives visual forms to spaces considered to be “hollow” or “blank”, using action, phenomena, and time as components.
