For 2018, trace the roots of ‘KINGYO (Goldfish)’ at 3 venues!
Returning this summer to its Nagoya venue
for the first time since 2014
4 years later, "The Serene World of ART AQUARIUM" is
better than ever!
Popular exhibits including “OoOku” & “Kimonorium”
make their first appearance in the Tokai region!!
This summer’s theme at the Matsuzakaya Art Museum, Nagoya venue is “Edo: The Grace of KINGYO”.
The Roots of KINGYO (goldfish) as an aspect of mass culture can be traced back to
Nihonbashi in the Edo period (1603-1868).
Now, “ART AQUARIUM” is reviving the cultural practice of viewing KINGYO (goldfish) while enjoying
the summer breeze for the modern day.
“OoOku”, a multifaceted work measuring approximately three meters wide that represents
the inner palace (itself a symbol of the Edo period, when the culture of admiring goldfish first blossomed) and
“Kimonorium”, a work that uses goldfish and 3D projection mapping to provide a representation of a pattern on
an exquisite ‘Kyo-yuzen’ (a form of dyeing that is one of the traditional crafts of Kyoto kimono)
embedded in a fish tank are just some of the hit ART AQUARIUM exhibits that will be appearing
in Nagoya for the first time.
four years later, we bring you the Serene World of “ART AQUARIUM” like you've never seen it before.
