Tokujin Yoshioka will be be presenting the installation 'Snow' this month at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo as part of an exhibition called 'Sensing Nature'.
The exhibition, which opens on July the 24th, re-thinks the Japanese perception of nature and also features work by Shinoda Taro and Kuribayashi Takashi.
Focusing on the innate human ability to perceive nature and the Japanese view of nature in an urbanised and modernised world, the three artists question how these views are reflected in contemporary art and design practices.
Consisting of newly commissioned works by Taro, Yoshioka and Takashi, the exhibition attempts to stimulate a sense of nature through large-scale installations which will interact with visitors, provoking physical experiences with their entire bodies.
Tokujin Yoshioka's piece is a re-working of a piece he originally conceived in 1997 - a huge, 15 metre wide space where fine feathers are blown up by the wind and shower down like real snow.
Evoking a snowscape of memory, and the expression of an imaginary natural beauty, the concept looks to be pretty magical.
Plus, if you missed the chance to go and see Yoshioka's 'Spectrum' project in Seoul, you'll be pleased to hear that the exhibition has been extended and will now be on view until August the 15th.
