Art Tower Mito

This exhibition introduces the installation works of Swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Jorg Lenzlinger in what is their largest exhibition yet. Steiner and Lenzlinger incorporate themes of human relationships, the body and mind, and our surrounding environment into works that have been designed to intrigue visitors and help nurture their creativity.

Rather than provide detailed explanations of each installation, guests are invited to envision their own interpretations, sometimes by interacting with the work itself. With the concept of “empowerment” as its overall theme, the artists hope to empower viewers with the strength of their own imagination; till May 6.
