The ground-breaking artist Fujiko Nakaya (b.1933, Sapporo, Japan) will be celebrated in the first comprehensive survey exhibition outside of Japan. 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. 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.
