‘Taro’s Sun 2’

August 19, 1998 - October 4, 1998

The eleven ceramic wall designs that were produced to decorate the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in 1956 disappeared when the building was demolished.
In this exhibition we will present the original large-scale sketches for this work as well as the actual-size plaster molds.
Looking at these molds that Taro carved from the solid plaster, determined to meet the challenge presented by this masterpiece of architecture designed by Kenzo Tange, we can feel his vigor as he worked with the image of the vast two-story space in his mind.
We hope that you will think back to this lost masterpiece.
