Roppongi Crossing Clocktower
[Participation fee]
This tower expresses gender in many colors through a diverse range of materials, becoming a marker in Roppongi Crossing. Beneath our skin runs colorful blood – “Polychromatic Skin” is a series of artworks that break through and liberate us from the unconscious stereotypes that stand in the way of freedom and peace embodied by gender. Race, religion, age, gender, national borders… we already hold the means to break through any and all barriers and connect to one another.
