Sachs / Noguchi

In 1977, Isamu Noguchi's freind and founder of the Sōgetsu-ryū school of ikebana, Sofu Teshigahara, asked him to design an open space for flowers, of stones, and water titled “Heaven” in the Sogetsu Headquarters in Tokyo.

Tom Sachs exhibition in the lobby of Sogetsu Kaikan. It was presented by Tomio Koyama Gallery

The sculptures by Sachs were related to an exhibition recently held at the the Noguchi Museum in New York. It was Sachs' interpretation of chanoyu (Japanese tea ceremony) and the associated rituals. More about that, here.
