Christian Boltanski: Animitas II
Time Out says
Leading French contemporary artist Christian Bolanski has worked extensively with Japanese themes in the past, expressing his artistic styles through sculpture, writing, film and photography. Always driven by themes 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.
One of his most ambitious works, the ‘Animitas' series consists of several site-specific installations in far-flung locations including Chile's Atacama Desert, featuring Japanese wind chimes that play an endless tune to the memory of lost souls.
Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo in Omotesando is showcasing two of these works – one set in a forest on Japan’s Teshima Island and another on the shores of the Dead Sea in Israel – though single shot video installations. It’s one of the most mesmerising works you’ll see in Tokyo this season.
