One of the key elements to a good exhibition is sensitivity to space. When the right art meets the right space it can make for a fabulous show and this is exactly what happened with Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo when presenting their 8th exhibition so far entitled Infinite Renew by Mariko Mori.

DSCN9196Espace Louis Vuitton is a modern exhibition space with tall floor to ceiling windows with a view out over the fashionable street of Omotesando and surrounding areas. However, the space transformed into a carte-blanche in order to accommodate Japanese artist Mariko Mori’s high-tech sculptures built out of fiber glass, mirrors, LED, and a real-time control system that allows the LED lights to change colors depending on visitor’s moment. The result was a wonderfully unique exhibition that looked like something out of a science fiction film with its white on white sterility and only a hint of soft glowing color in the Infinite Energy triptych spirals.

  1. I’d love a couple of these in my hall and I could change the colours according to my mood. Wonderful. Re exhibitions, as well as the right art in the right space I feel the right seating is also required in the right spots to allow people to linger and those less agile to view from a sitting position. I’ve noticed people linger less in exhibitions where seats are few.

    Have a fizzing New Year and best wishes for 2014.
