art lesson: tadashi kawamata

a Japanese sculptor and installer, kawamata is known for creating urban spaces that utilize simple materials.  his latest spaces or huts can be found in Paris - at the Centre Pompidou.


“The artist modifies the space on which it operates, creating outgrowths as pods nestled in height, suspended walkways, observation posts, which disturb the established order and challenge our view of our environment.”

i love the contrast between the wooden huts and the metal structure of the museum.  installation art is my favorite - anything that makes the viewer feel not in control of his/her own space is wonderful.
