-At the Bottom of a Well-

Aki Narita x Yoko Naito Art Exhibition

This summer, the 30 meter open air atrium at Park Hotel Tokyo will turn into a “well”!?

-At the Bottom of a Well- Aki Narita x Yoko Naito Art Exhibition will be held as the 25th exhibition of ART colours which celebrates the four seasons of Japan with arts. This is a collaboration exhibition by two artists who have gained popularity through the Park Hotel Tokyo’s Artist in Hotel Project, where they each created a hotel room named after a fish, which are “Geisha Goldfish” and “Carp.”

Wells probably exist, or have existed, everywhere in the world. For human beings, who are not able to survive without water, wells are a primitive and fundamental blessing from God. From ancient times, it has been sanctified and considered to be the entrance to other worlds that connect to the underworld, and as a forbidden place that must not be infringed upon. Many of you probably know of ghost stories related to wells here in Japan as well. Also, it is said that there have been actual cases where carps were released as guardian angels.

Aki Narita is an artist with a style as if there is fierce passion dwelling within deeply settled latent memories, and Yoko Naito draws the internal impulse that wells up in search of truth using a pragmatic and free technique. The artworks of these two contrasting female artists will turn the hotel’s atrium on the 25th floor into a well in the sky. At night, the projection mapping video will flow through the entire walls, and the works of the two artists will swim freely in the simulated well space. In this space, where it is like a well filled with cool water, please enjoy a moment forgetting about the sweltering summer heat.
