Counter Sky Gardenby Tatsuo Miyajima - Sculptor and Installation Artist
Post-Mono-ha artist Tatsuo Miyajima, as a part of the Fosun Art Foundation Artists Program, will present his first public installation – “Counter Sky Garden” at the rooftop of a cultural institution overlooking the Shanghai Bund. Shanghai has long been known as a global city where multiple cultures and races coexist for mutual prosperity, and the “Counter Sky Garden” is the manifestation of Shanghai as a global integration and a modern metropolis.Read More
In the “Counter Sky Garden”, the numbers count up from 1 to 9, or down from 9 to 1 at various speeds - some fast and some slow. The numbers are lit in different colors indicating various nations, races and cultures. It is these differences that represent individuality of citizens, each asserting its own “luminance of life.” When seen as a whole, these differences come to create one harmony. I believe this shows the potential for future prosperity that Shanghai has inherently.
Furthermore, the “Counter Sky Garden” invites the citizens of Shanghai, who are hailed from different countries, to participate in the making of this artwork by setting the speed of each digital counter. Therefore, participators would meet one another in the sky garden, with their encountering and shared experiences recorded.
