Tokujin Yoshioka has created the Tornado installation as a centerpiece of his first solo exhibition at the Saga Prefectural Art Museum in Kyushu, the island where the polyhedral designer grew up. Stacking more than two millions of transparent straws that spreads over the exhibition space, Tokujin conceived a striking scenography for his show that appears like a natural phenomenon.
In the exhibition, some of his renowned art works are displayed such as “Honey-pop” which was presented in 2001 and had received the international attentions, “Water Block” which is installed permanently at Musee d’Orsay in Paris, and “VENUS” the natural crystal chair.
Tokujin’s solo exhibition at the Saga Prefectural Art Museum in Kyushu will be on display until August 2, 2015.
