Art Break: "Mizukagami" by Miya Ando

By Bridget Bray

Join Nancy C. Allen Curator & Director of Exhibitions, Bridget Bray, as she takes you on a tour of "Mizukagami" a feature in the exhibition Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form: Works by Miya Ando. Drawing on the important Buddhist text known as the Heart Sutra, artist Miya Ando responds to our unique building with references to elemental materials such as metal, light, water, and wood. This site-specific response to Yoshio Taniguchi's architecture reframes the visitor's perception of the space, and invites contemplation of the nature of reality.
