Tokyo Blossoms

The brief was to develop a temporary installation that would inhabit the spaces of the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art at the same time as the ’25 Years: Deutsche Bank Art’ show. Inspired by the transitional nature of the project, the studio was interested in the idea of an organic, growth- based system, which would highlight the exact period of time in which the exhibition would be staged.
The starting point for Tokyo Blossoms was a series of studies into the transformative qualities of textiles, with the aim of replicating the same sense of lightness, softness and flexibility in the design. The intervention was discreet; placing a small number of objects that embodied these characteristics in the exhibition and wider museum, focusing on the inner garden. The visitor first encountered the installation as shadows of these different elements, which increased in scale and frequency as they approached the garden. Inside the garden, the installation manifest itself as a pavilion with spaces to sit, rest and enjoy the views of the museum’s landscape and assemblage of art and nature.
