Throne by Kohei Nawa at the Louvre pyramid in Paris

We would like to share the fantastic news with you, that KOHEI NAWA is going
to present Throne (the sculpture which is shown in our
current show in Hamburg) in a version of 12 meter height at the Pyramid at the
Louvre in Paris.

"In our increasingly globalized world, diversity is an essential element
in the transformation and growth of society. Single systems of absolute values
and principles used to color the lives of large numbers of people under the rule
of royalty or monarchy, but such coherence is now rare. However, the progress
of computers and artificial intelligence is accelerating, and if they reach the
stage where they boast absolute intelligence, society and whole nations are
likely to blindly follow them. This work attempts to express that premonition
as an immense "floating vacant throne". If you think about what instances of
power and authority have continued without interruption since ancient times,
the pyramids provide one example, but we have to also ask what will continue
into the future. Created with reference to the forms of festival floats and
portable shrines that appear in the rituals and festivities of the East, the
sculpture fuses today's 3D modeling techniques with gold leaf techniques
that date back to ancient Egypt."—Kohei Nawa, Artist Statement

 

 

Exhibition Period: July 13th 2018 - January 14th 2019

“Small bubbles (cells) continue to form on the surface of a
gently lapsing liquid. They accumulate to form an autonomous structure
comprised of foam. Each bubble cannot escape the cycle of birth and
destruction, which is not unlike the way our cells operate as they
metabolize and circulate.“ —Kohei Nawa, Artist Statement
