BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 PRODID:-//PYVOBJECT//NONSGML Version 1//EN BEGIN:VEVENT UID:events.uid.4833@www.discovernikkei.org DTSTART:20140906T000000Z DTEND:20141025T000000Z DESCRIPTION:This East Coast installation serves as a counterpoint to Hashim oto's immense <em>Gas Giant </em>that opened at MOCA Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles in March 2014. Comprised of thousands of the artist's sign ature bamboo and paper "kites" intricately strung together\, <em>Gas Giant </em>offered the viewer an immersive\, shifting\, free-floating arena to explore.&nbsp\;\n\nWith <em>Skyfarm Fortress\, </em>Hashimoto similarly cr eates a wall to wall\, floor to ceiling environment\, but anchors the thre e dimensional sculpture with a complex system of suspended open cubes that coalesce from the alignment of solid black square kites. This architechtu ral grid--Brutalism at its more ethereal--both visually supports and penet rates a band of overlapping planes of multi-colored collaged elements.\n\n Above this dynamic substructure is a canopy of white elliptical kites. Clo ud-like\, translucent\, out of reach\, and constantly rippling from air cu rrents\, this Sky contrasts with the perceived rigidity of the Fortress be low. From balletic components\, Hashimoto creates a tense narrative of abs tract form and composition.&nbsp\;\n\nThe gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday \, 10:00AM-6:00PM.\n\nFor more information\, <a href="http://www.maryboone gallery.com/index.html">visit this page</a>.
