Carsten Nicolai's Sculpture for Tokyo



In addition to the Yasukuni Shrine and the Nippon Budokan Hall, Tokyo's Chiyoda-ku business district boasts a further attraction. Carsten Nicolai has created a sculpture made of gleaming silvery steel for the new square in front of the modernist Kasumigaseki building. With a polyhedral structure, poly_stella is both organic and futuristic. A single basic shape gives rise to an extremely complex object. Nicolai's most recent work for a public space illustrates a process with endless variations. Its surface also emphasizes this aspect: Passers-by and the constantly changing surroundings are reflected in the smooth steel, making the work continually look different.

Carsten Nicolai, born in Chemnitz, Germany in 1965, has been represented in the Deutsche Bank Collection with numerous works since 1991. One of the most important contemporary artists, he explores the interface between art, nature, and science. His work is based on interdisciplinary research and scientifically oriented observations. In his installations, Nicolai, who is also active as a producer of electronic music, deals with the relationship of sound and the structure of space.
