Fujiko Nakaya

Pathfinder #18700 Oslo

- I want to provide a situation that people can physically relate to nature. For me, nature is not an object of beauty, but the beauty is in the relationship a person develop with nature. 

Fujiko Nakaya (born 1933) has worked with fog and cloud sculptures at major museums and art events around the world, from the Osaka World Exhibition in 1970 Expo’70, to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and in 2017 at Tate Modern in London, Centre Pompidou in Paris and ARoS in Aarhus in Denmark.

The title (# 18700 Oslo – Blindern) indicates the international code to the nearest weather station.  The fog reacts on the weather conditions and cannot be controlled or formed into specific shapes.
