Art in Ginza.

This art space is located on the eighth floor of the Hermès flagship store. The surrounding building is constructed from glass blocks allowing soft light to filter through and open up the space, while the high ceiling also makes this the perfect venue for installations.

Arrive at Enoura Observatory.

Set across 60,000 square meters of land, the Enoura Observatory is a performance space, gallery and art installation in its own right. I was completely mesmerised by the view we were greeted with upon arrival.

 “This is the first memory I have from childhood, from a spot just down there. This was the beginning of my own consciousness, the starting point of my mind. It was the first time I wondered about who I am, a question I am still asking myself. Somehow, I was guided back here.”
Artist Hiroshi Sugimoto
