“Sleep” is an outdoor installation that consists of a global jungle, a tricycle, and a sand castle. Bright balloons connected to the equipment gently inflate and deflate as if they are breathing, and its lights flicker in a slow constant rhythm, suggesting the subtlety of life. The soft sounds of piano and a daytime playground are reminiscent of the youth’s presence and vitality. The work alludes to the absence of children in parks due to the decreasing birthrate and change in how they play.
■Roppongi Art Night 2019
Roppongi Art Night is a one-night celebration of art staged in the district of Roppongi. A diverse range of works including not only artworks but also design, music, video and performance pieces are dotted around the Roppongi neighborhood with its high concentration of retail stores and cultural institutions, creating an extraordinary experience, while proposing a lifestyle that celebrates the enjoyment of art in everyday living. Bringing art and street together as one will also enhance the image of Roppongi as a cultural hub, and offer a trailblazing example of neighborhood initiative within the vast metropolis of Tokyo. Roppongi Art Night will continue to develop as the capital’s premier art festival.
