The theme of the venue Shanghai, China is “The fusion of the ‘World of sky’ with the ‘World of water’”.
The location for this first performance in China is in Shanghai’s Pudong District, in Lujiazui,
in the observatory on the top of ‘Shanghai World Financial Center’, which has 101 floors and is 492m high.
The observatory Sky Arena 94 is on the 94th floor and is 423m high.
With Shanghai’s beautiful panorama in the background, the “World of water”,
woven together by “ART AQUARIUM”, and “World of sky” are fused,
giving birth to a fantastical world never experienced before.
In the exhibition hall, 1,000 kingyo (goldfish) swim “Oiran” on display.
The gigantic goldfishbowl is 2.4m high and has a diameter of 2m, and symbolizes “ART AQUARIUM”,
which represents the red-light district of the Edo Period.
In addition, one of the pieces “Kirikorium” gives life to techniques of making Edo Kiriko cut glass,
a traditional craft passed down since the Edo Period.
There are other pieces as well, such as the Kutani ceramic “Kutani Kingyo Exhibition”,
which relies on traditional crafts representative of Kanazawa, Ishikawa.
For the first time ever, these works and others that incorporate techniques typical of
Japanese crafts are shown outside Japan.
Please enjoy aquatic art “SKY AQUARIUM” in the open sky, which is reminiscent of “SKY AQUARIUM”,
the starting point for “ART AQUARIUM”.
