Visit the Pola Museum of Art in Hakone to witness the Masuda X Monet “Point-Rhythm World 2018- Monet’s Microcosm” exhibition!

31.July.2018 | SPOT

The Sebastian Masuda X Claude Monet Point-Rhythm World 2018 – Monet’s Microcosm” exhibition opened on Sunday 22nd July at the Pola Museum of Art in Hakone, Kanagawa, and will close on Sunday 2nd December.

 

Sebastian Masuda’s peculiar art style is a fusion of different coloured materials. Now, a large art piece inspired by Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” has been installed at the museum. Masuda has recreated a brand new version of the French Impressionist’s painting by using materials rich in texture, replacing key features with his own style of art and adding touches of the colours used in Monet’s original piece.

Visitors can become part of the exhibition with its interactive feature. Thanks to the help of Teruaki Tsubokura, the room’s exhibition cameras capture the movements of the visitors and display them through projection mapping. In addition, there are several areas that play music by Sakana Hosomi, which changes subtly depending on the time and the movements of the visitors. This interactive exhibit invites visitors to become a part of its world. 

The restaurant/cafe inside the museum even sells a colourful menu of desserts inspired by the exhibition. 《Water Lilies (Suiren) (Alone:¥1,080/With Coffee or tea:¥1,440). Besides this, there are many other ways in which water lilies are represented at the museum!

 

Masuda has created a new image of Monet’s work using modern materials. Come discover whether this new exhibition is a new way to enjoy Monet’s art!
