The Kaleidoscopic Eye Exhibition

Posted in Exhibitions by Paul on June 27, 2009


The exhibitions keep coming thick and fast for me here in Tokyo as there is way too many good ones on right now, so next up was a visit to the Mori Art Museum close to work in Roppongi to go and see ‘The Kaleidoscopic Eye‘ exhibition. Mori have collaborated with Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, a Vienna-based foundation, drawing on their renowned collection to present a selection of art, including dynamic installation, that stimulates the senses in myriad ways. Participating artists included Tracey Emin and Carsten Höller.

A very well thought out exhibition with each artist’s work taking centre stage at some point of my visit. My favourite pieces were the disco ball room, the interactive table when touched triggered sound and music around the edges of the room and Klaus Weber’s fountain. When I walked into the final room with the fountain in it, I thought, “great some pretentious piece of art”, but the fountain was flowing with liquid LSD! Great stuff.
