On the second floor of Ginza Six, in the central atrium, there will be an installation of biomorphic sculptures by Kohei Nawa. The sculptor imagines a world in which life forms and matter, and those entities in between, coexist. A sculpture group – we see a deer, accumulations of ether – will be suspended in the atrium. Characteristically Nawa focuses on the material properties of these forms, covering them with alumina and microbead grains. After the end of April, an augmented reality show co-produced by choreographer Damien Jalet will occur.
