This attempt is part of the OTA art project <Machinie Wokaku>.The aim is to create a new landscape by planting art in the public spaces of Ota Ward. In 2023, we will hold the following exhibitions as Vol.5.
"Light and Wind Mobile Scape" is an attempt to create a new landscape in Den-en-chofu Seseragi Park, which is a small forest that enriches Den-en City, by combining mobile art and the natural phenomena of the park.Kosei Komatsu, the artist of this exhibition, creates a mobile that gives a beautiful spatial experience with artificial wings that visualize the fine movements of the air.This time, you can see a new installation using the mobile.Feathers planted widely in the forest play with the wind like weathercocks, diffusing the glitter of sunlight.Mobile scape (mobile art / landscape) created in the green space is art that anyone can enjoy while strolling along the promenade, and at the same time, it will also be a device that allows visitors to rediscover the beauty of nature.In addition to new works by Kosei Komatsu, this exhibition will also display "Harukaze" in the Seseragi Museum and "Overflow" by Misa Kato in the park.
The exhibition work, Misa Kato's "Overflow", was temporarily removed due to damage during the exhibition, but can be viewed again from Wednesday, May 5th.
For safety reasons, the works will be viewed from outside the enclosure.
13: 00-14: 30 each day
*Please note that you will be viewing from the outside of the enclosure except for the above dates and times.
