The National Art Center, Tokyo 1st Floor Lobby
[Participation fee]
Takuro Tamayama is adept at transforming existing spaces into unfamiliar scenes, and his new installation will be exhibited in the 1st floor lobby. Two concrete cones measuring 16- and 8-meters tall stand with an imposing presence in the lobby’s stretching horizontal layout designed by Kisho Kurokawa. Tamayama will treat the forms of these cones as a motif, creating an artwork of light that stimulates an awareness of the entire space.
