In liaison with the Asia Corridor Contemporary Art Exhibition, a Cultural City of East Asia 2017 Kyoto event, this exhibition corelates to Mishima's project at Nijo Castle, both of which explore the theme of water through the installation of her glass work “Eyes of Light”.
Kyoto, the thousand-year capital, rich in hidden streams, the waters flowing from Shimogamo to the Imperial Palace, and in and around the inner moat of Nijo Castle. Venice, water-city built uopn labyrinthine canals, the Adriatic pressing into Murano Island, where glass is born.
In this Asia Corridor Contemporary Art Exhibition, my glass work “Eyes of Light” floating around Nijo Castle traces the veins of water flowing through the capital and streams into this gallery space.
The same gallery space also welcomes Shanghai-born artist Yang Yongliang. The waters welling out of his photographic “Travelers Among Mountains & Streams” link to my works in glass, painting the mountain waters out into three dimensions.
Water scenes created by “Eyes of Light,” born in Venice and installed in Nijo Castle’s inner moat, spread out in patterns of wave to the water veins of our awareness.
