Kort Beskrivelse

I 1951 begynte den japanske-amerikanske kunstneren Isamu Noguchi å designe Akari Light Sculpture - en gruppe håndlagde lamper av Shoji papir som til slutt omfattet over 100 armaturer - bord-, gulv- og tak-lamper. Han valgte navnet "Akari" for disse objektene, et ord som betyr "lys" på japansk.

Beskrivelse

Isamu Noguchi, born in 1904 in Los Angeles to the Japanese poet Yone

Noguchi and the American writer Leonie Gilmour, studied at Columbia

University and the Leonardo da Vinci Art School.



He subsequently

established his first independent studio and received a Guggenheim

Fellowship in 1927. Noguchi became an assistant to Constantin Brancusi

in Paris and presented his first solo exhibition in New York. After

studying brush drawing in China, he travelled to Japan to work with clay

under the master potter Jinmatsu Uno.



His experiences living

and working in different cultural circles are reflected in Isamu

Noguchi's work as an artist. He is considered a universal talent with a

creative oeuvre that went beyond sculpture to encompass stage sets,

furniture, lighting, interiors as well as outdoor plazas and gardens.

His sculptural style is indebted to a vocabulary of organic forms and

exerted a sustained influence on the design of the 1950s.



'My

Father, Yone Noguchi is Japanese and has long been known as an

interpreter of the East and West, through poetry. I wish to do the same

thing through sculpture', he wrote in his proposal for a Guggenheim

Fellowship.



Isamu Noguchi died in New York in 1988.
