Roppongi is a symbolic city that has continued to change through continuous scrapping and rebuilding, from its postwar reconstruction from burnt ruins, the subsequent period of high economic growth, the bubble economy and its collapse, and the past 30 years that have been lost. In a vacant lot awaiting redevelopment, the sediment created by May rains reflects the changing times and seems to connect the other shore and this shore. This vacant lot, the puddles, and even the dazzling tower of light will eventually disappear like the morning dew. This ephemeral scene may live in our memories as a faint haze.


Takahiro Iwasaki

Iwasaki was born in Hiroshima in 1975. He has exhibited numerous works at international exhibitions and museums in Japan and abroad. While widely known for his detailed and intricate sculptures, he has also presented large-scale installations rooted in space at the Okunoto International Art Festival in 2017 and the Aichi Triennale in 2019, and he has a developed style of connecting the “things” he creates with the characteristics of a place. He held a solo exhibition, Upside Down, Forest, at the Japanese Pavilion of the Venice Biennale.
