If we were to qualify the works of Tatzu Nishi in one word if would be the word thrilling.Unlike many other works of contemporary art that display ideological, ascetic inclinations, they are rather characterized by a sense of elation projected by a spectacle, visual striking appearance. Nishi (b 1960) creates large sculptures and sets them in unusual surroundings. His Chéri in the Sky for example is an equestrian statue on permanent display in the uppermost part of the Maison Hermes flagship store on a prime location in Ginza. By building makeshift scaffolding and enclosing the statue with a floor and walls, Nishi turned the place into what looks a bit like a girl's private chamber. Essay by Ren Fukuzumi.
