Kohei Nawa's work presented in Paris during FIAC

Moving fluidly between different media, Kohei Nawa’s work explores themes of science and digital culture while challenging viewers’ sensory experiences.

As part of the Hors les Murs programme during FIAC in Paris, Ether, a large-scale aluminium sculpture by the Japanese artist will be presented in one of the remarkable fountains of the Jardin des Tuileries. The shape is based on a 3D visualization in five stages of the form taken by a drop of a highly viscous liquid hitting the floor.

Running until 14 January, 2019, Kohei Nawa’s Throne (2018) will remain on view beneath I.M. Pei’s glass pyramids that mark the entrance to the museum. The installation is a hallmark of the exhibition, Japonisms 2018: souls in harmony, on the 160th anniversary of the opening of diplomatic relations between Japan and France.

Lastly, Nawa is the subject of an exhibition presented at Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature. For the first time in France, PixCell-Deer will be presented alongside Vessel, a body of work created in 2015 with choreographer Damien Jalet.
