Special Exhibition
“Isamu Wakabayashi-The Garden of the Museum of Modern Art, Seibu Takanawa, Karuizawa (now the Garden of Sezon Museum of Modern Art)”

Isamu Wakabayashi (1936-2003) is a sculptor representing post war Japan, known for making steel its medium in his works. Participating in the Venice Biennale twice (1980 and 1986), and exhibitions overseas such as the Kunsthalle Mannheim in Germany (1997) has gained high evaluations. Wakabayashi’s creations were about how we humans are in a relationship with nature. Craving symbiosis of nature and human, while continuing to creating works, his garden productions tackled from the 1980s to his closing years are a form of expression suitable of turning his thoughts into an artwork. For this exhibition, Wakabayashi’s thoughts in practice will be traced and presented by exhibiting his drawings created to design our garden “Garden of Karuzawa Takanawa Museum” (1982 – 1985), fine-art photography, and models.
