Aigues-Mortes is a walled city with a remnant of medieval days in Southern France.

I am going to work on two installations in a castle tower that was built in the 13th century.

Group Show, - Mono no Aware. The beauty of things -
The State Hermitage Museum (Saint Petersburg, Russia)

The General Staff Building
November 15, 2013 - February 8, 2014

The State Hermitage Museum and Hermitage 20/21 project introduce to the public the exhibition "Mono-no Aware. Beauty of Things. Japanese Contemporary Art". The term "mono-no aware" traces its origin to the Heian period (794–1185) aesthetics and means a sad awareness of transience of things. Modern artists do not directly illustrate the term in their works but rather create a sense of gentle sadness partly in tune with the old poetic attitude that gave birth to it. On view are installations, sculpture, photographs and video art produced lately by Japanese artists Suda Yoshihiro, Kengo Kito, Kanenji Teppei, Kuwakubo Ryota, Onishi Yasuaki, Hiroaki Morita, Shinishiro Kano and Motoi Yamamoto.
