The various installations through the galleries by artist Yukinori Yanagi reference the famous writer Mishima Yukio’s treatise on the destructiveness of industrialization to Japan’s culture. Remnants of the novelist’s house are suspended in space, creating a kind of reconstruction of the author’s immediate surroundings engulfed by the surrounding of his subject matter. Taken as a whole, the project is a fascinating look both into the past and the not-so-distant-future.
