“Fog makes visible things become invisible and invisible things – like wind – become visible”. Fujiko Nakaya
Curators Andrea Lissoni and Sarah Theurer present the exhibition “Fujiko Nakaya. Nebel Leben” at Haus der Kunst, the first comprehensive survey exhibition of the visionary sculptor outside of Japan. She became internationally renowned for her immersive fog artworks, which defied traditional conventions of sculpture by generating temporary, borderless transformations that physically engage with the public and give shape to the surrounding environment. Driven by early ecological concerns, Nakaya’s work deals with water and air, mediums that have particular resonance in the face of the climate crisis. From the early paintings to her fog sculptures, single-channel videos, installations and documentation that reveal Nakaya’s cultural and social references, this experiential exhibition offers an in-depth survey of one of Japan’s foremost artists.
