japanese artist kohei nawa has immersed visitors at the aichi triennale in undulating sea of bubbling matter, surrounding the walls and floor in porous, cloud-like material. ‘foam’ inhabits an almost pitch-black room, creating an ethereal quality that seems aesthetically otherworldly. walking through the space, the topography of the puffs creates a massive terrain of floating material, stiff enough to stand in place, yet copious in its fragility and delicacy. the organically structured conglomeration of cells react to their chemistry, moving in flux, swelling, and occasionally losing vitality and spreading out over the ground.
