June 4-July 10

Nature and the movement of elements are the main inspirations behind Susumu Shingu’s work, which include huge geometric kinetic sculptures that sway with the movement of water, wind and air currents.

For this exhibition, however, the 78-year-old artist looks to the stars by presenting works under the theme of “outer space.”

The Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum becomes Shingu’s “space ship” in which he invites visitors on a journey into his cosmos of both new and recent sculptures and mobiles. Works will not only be displayed in exhibition rooms, but also in the lobby and outside the museum in its canal and pool areas.

Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum; 2-1 Dejima-machi, Nagasaki. Nagasaki Stn. 10 a.m.-8 p.m. ¥1,000. Closed 2nd, 4th Mon. 095-833-2110; www.nagasaki-museum.jp/english
