Wataru Itou – A Town Bridged By the Setting Sun 夕日に架かる街
The name of this work of art, a moving, lit installation in lacquer, paper and cypress wood is called 夕日に架かる街 in Japanese, which although is pretty straightforward has my stumped as for a good translation in English. A Town Bridged By the Setting Sun? I really don’t know how to say it in English. This is the latest work by the young super nova of Japanese art, Wataru Itou (伊藤 航), whom you might remember from the glorious paper castle I posted a couple of years ago. This one was exhibited in Tokyo’s Marunouchi Building a couple of months ago. Of course the rope way car is moving! I’m looking forward to following his career!
