Yumiko Ishihara

Friday, October 28th, 2011

OK, I am back, so let’s get back to it.  Beautiful installation at the Koganecho Bazarr by Japanese architect Yumiko Ishihara.  Ishihara made this display using 3,000 chopsticks and bamboo sticks as part of the Yokohama Triennale.  Not only is the pure simplicity of the piece striking, it also allows for visitors to look through to different areas keeping the sight lines open.  Everything about this just seems so elegantly delicate – I am not even sure what was displayed, but I imagine they are gentle tiny little works.
