Arturo Berned, in collaboration with Toyo Ito (Pritzker Award 2013).
April 1- September 30, 2014. Grin Grin Park. Island City. Fukuoka. Japan.
“MU” is a reference to a blank sheet of paper, an attitude of openness without preconceived ideas nor prejudices and is a tribute to japan and its people. Recently awarded the Pritzker Prize, master Toyo Ito carried out an experimental project at grin grin park which encompasses a functional park surrounding a circular pond with a vantage point overlooked by a gently curved greenhouse. Six of the eight sculptures are scattered throughout the open spaces between the pond and the greenhouse, provoking an alternative path further to the existing one, which is simultaneously in dialogue with the edifice. The seventh of the sculptures is located at the Embassy of Spain in Tokyo.
