Nakanojo Biennale 2011 | The Floating Dive by Masahiko Kiyooka
Another must-see art installation from the Nakanojo Biennale is Masahiko Kiyooka’s work erected in an old school. The artist demonstrates his keen sense for memory and decay using the “yard” as an allegory. In one room Kiyooka takes the surrounding inspirational topography and encases different scenes into multiple boxes that take on the look of a scientific field-guide.
In another room are a dispiriting amount of found objects that have been seemingly trashed. However, the artist somehow transforms them into work of beauty by covering them in moss.
