Eurasian Garden delights OPAM visitors

Inflated and rooted by weights to be moved by the carefree, passing wind. Breathing, lively and free. The five meter tall balloon installation depicting floral painterly masks that opened April 24th, 2015 at the Oita Prefectural Art Museum continues to please. Representing free spirits and the open-minded attitude at the core of Dutch mentality, this flower-patterned homage recalls the historical narrative of Dutch explorers first arriving in Japan in the 16th century.

Watch and discover the deep meaning of the design concept behind this irreverent, two-way union of customs and cultures. Reflect upon the ceaseless passage of time with artwork that symbolizes the enduring cultural exchange between Holland and Japan. “Moving effortlessly like breath, this installation proclaims the possibility for the acceptance of thoughts and ideas that originate from distance shores.”, Marcel Wanders said.OPAM_Product _Content _02_CS
