26 Lake Boat in the Alps

Sugihara Nobuyuki


Sugihara lives on the side of Lake Kizaki in Shinano Omachi. Using the rice and mosquito nets on the shores of Lake Kizaki, he creates a work that models the image of the Alps reflected on the lake surface between the mountains. The snow-white color and the glistening light of the ripples in the water are created using one kernel of rice at a time. Viewers of Sugihara’s work vividly sense the source of the artist’s creation, where the days living and working on land create connections to his expression of the vast nature of the Japan Alps.


Exhibition date: until July 25
