Some of her other works have included boats too, but her art isn’t limited to just boats or even people. It questions reality, what i means to exist, what we as people are in search for and where we are headed. It also looks at the many different directions we can take to move forward in the flow of time.
6 Boats symbolises the many difficulties Ginza had to overcome to restore itself after the war. It captures the process of moving forward.
The new installation will stand out grandly in GINZA SIX where it will be seen from every floor.
