NIGHT AQUAQIUM

THE FIRST ART AQUARIUM FOR YEAR 2016 WILL BE IN HAKATA, FUKUOKA AFTER 2 YEARS INTERVAL !

The theme of Nihonbashi ART AQUARIUM is “Edo ~Ryo of Kingyo~”.
We look back into the time when kingyo culture spread among the towns people during Edo period
and they enjoyed the refreshing coolness by looking at kingyo.

The concept of the venue is “hanamachi (fleshpot) of Edo”.
In the venue, artworks using edo-kiriko glasses and mysterious red-colored pillars, and etc.
bring extraordinary fantasy space.
For the numbers of kingyo swimming in the Nihonbashi venue,
we are expecting approximately 8,000 kingyos
which will greatly exceed the maximum number of kingyo in the past exhibitions which is 5,000.

As the main artwork for Nihonbashi venue, “Super Oiran” which is the progress of the huge Oiran series,
which are the main masterpiece of ART AQUARIUM, will newly appear.

“Super Oiran” consists of 15 aquarium tanks, one main huge kingyo bowl and 14 aquariums that surrounds it,
and is gorgeously colored up by the lighting and music.
The kingyo bowl has diameter and height of 2.5m, the total diameter of the whole artwork has diameter of 5.6m and height of 3.5m.
The water mass will be triple of the artwork “Oiran”.
In “Super Oiran”, the kingyo bowl expresses the world of fleshpot during Edo period
and how the courtesans lived and aimed the goal to become “oiran”, the number one in the district.
The aquariums that surround the kingyo bowl and the kingyos inside expresses the procession of courtesans.
