Eternity – The Ancient Fountains

Nobuo Hashiba Exhibition

“This country’s ancient fountains are deep.
Drunk with the sound of the drum and the flute,
I immerse myself in ancient mystery.
I drop my plumb line to measure the depth of time,
and my own depth”.
(“Die tiefen Brunnen” by Thomas Immoos, English translation by Park Hotel Tokyo)

Among the works produced by artists, there may be some collective memories which have accumulated in the psyche since ancient times, whether the artists themselves noticed them or not. Sometimes, we become aware of ordinary human experiences oozing out from the depths of my consciousness, like when looking at the blinding sun through my fingers, staring vacantly at water pools in a sudden summer shower, or gazing fixedly at burning firewood in the night. Art gives us an opportunity to drink the water from the deep fountains from the past of this country called Japan, as in Thomas Immoos’ poems. Perhaps these excellent artworks with their raw appeal, and this season which is called the autumn of art, have the mysterious power to revive the ancient memories in ourselves.

In the 18th exhibition “Eternity – The Ancient Fountains, Nobuo Hashiba Exhibition” in the ART colours series which presents art in each of Japan’s four seasons, we feature works by the artist Nobuo Hashiba, as well as other works by modern artists displayed throughout the Atrium which evoke the atmosphere of ancient times. In the open ceiling space, while you look at the works, you can also enjoy special dessert and cocktail imaginatively crafted to complement them. We hope this exhibition, which is perfect for autumn, the harvest season with its famous mid-autumn moon, will please both your eyes and your palate.
