Jean-Michel OTHONIEL Kiku Tokyo Weekender

Jean-Michel Othoniel «夢路» Dream Road

Art

French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel marks his first gallery presentation in Japan. On view is a new series of glass sculptures and gold leaf paintings that have never been seen before.

This solo show in Japan follows the artist’s retrospective at the Hara Museum in 2012. Othoniel continues his exploration of nature in a contemplative approach by presenting new series of abstract and sensuous artworks: the Kiku, inspired by the chrysanthemum flower and its symbolism in ancient Japanese culture.

Since the end of the 1980s, Jean-Michel Othoniel has been inventing a world that encompasses boundless creativity, with works ranging from drawing to sculpture, installation to photography, and writing to performance. He first explored materials with reversible qualities such as sulphur and wax, and has been working with glass since 1993. His current work takes on an architectural dimension, creating encounters with gardens and historical sites through public and private commissions all over the world.
