One of the giants of French contemporary art, Christian Boltanski now presents his first-ever solo show in Tokyo – remarkably, as the 72-year-old has worked extensively with Japanese themes in the past. Basing his work on questions of life, death and the aftermath of war, Boltanski has spent his career creating huge installations out of everyday items like clothing, photographs and cookie tins; his 'Animitas' series spans works in Chile's Atacama Desert and London and consists of Japanese wind chimes that play an endless tune to the memory of lost souls. See this and many other thought-provoking pieces at the Teien Museum through Christmas Day.
