About “Fujiko Nakaya. Nebel Leben” - The scientific observations of Ukichiro Nakaya%
Fujiko Nakaya came to Munich in May 2022 to see and further develop her exhibition “Nebel Leben” at Haus der Kunst itself. She observed the fog sculptures closely over several days and made adjustments. She also brought other exhibits of her father Ukichiro Nakaya's work and life from Japan. In this video, the curators of the exhibition, Andrea Lissoni and Sarah Theurer, tell us how the physicist and his scientific observation of natural processes have influenced Fujiko Nakaya in her artistic work.
Ukichiro Nakaya was engaged in the scientific classification of natural snow crystals and was the first to succeed in producing artificial snow crystals. He also founded the influential film production company Iwanami Productions. A selection of films digitized especially for the exhibition can be seen during the duration of the exhibition at the “Iwanami Special Programme” in the auditorium.
