Exhibition project: "Is it Spring?" By Mari ito

Proyecto expositivo: “¿Es primavera?” de Mari ito - IMG 2

Casa Asia presents in collaboration with TMB (Transportes Metropolitanos de Barcelona) this public art project at the Universitat metro station, located in the same university square of the city, consisting of art performance by the Japanese artist Mari Ito (Tokyo, 1980), who resides in Barcelona since 2006.

It is a pictorial installation that tells the birth of spring, an event that is celebrated in Japan traditionally as the beginning of life as it is represented in all of nature, emerging from the "land of shadows", often identified with winter. It is about nature that prepares slowly every year, until the explosion of the elements that flourish thanks to the rains that provides the water drops on leaves of trees and petals of flowers.

This exhibition project has a permanent character and was conceived as the beginning of a more extensive collaboration between Casa Asia and TMB. The exhibition will be held during the month of June and will be inaugurated in mid-July 2017.
