Art installation of Tsai & Yoshikawa @GREEN SPRINGS



The year is gradually coming to a close, with beautiful illuminations decorating the streets and the city coming back to life little by little.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone for their support this year.


 Gallery NAO MASAKI director Nao Masaki was in charge of the creative direction of Tsai & Yoshikawa's art installation 'Daydream', which is currently being held at the GREEN SPRINGS commercial facility in Tachikawa, Tokyo. London-based artists Tsai & Yoshikawa, who develop site-specific artworks, have been active in the UK this year with their winter and Christmas artworks in Hermes stores across the country.

 This time, inspired by Tachikawa City's concept of 'the whole town as a museum' and the GREEN SPRINGS hanging garden, they have created a space full of wondrous joy and discovery, like a peach garden, with six dynamic artworks dotted throughout the garden, adding colour to the winter landscape. If you are in the area, please visit us.

 And we sincerely wish you a happy and prosperous 2023.

 May this world of chaos, through artistic expression, be a force that moves us one step further into a new world...
