In the corridor: the Four Rainbows, work in situ, Daniel Buren for KENPOKU ART 2016. Japan

Daniel Buren is covering Hitachi Station, the design of which was supervised by architect Kazuyo Sejima, with 300 meters’ worth of rainbow-colored sheet. The station’s appearance, wrapped by clear multicolored sheets, will slowly shift as time passes and the seasons change. The artistic journey over mountain and sea begins at Hitachi Station, the entranceway to the festival. Painter and conceptual artist Daniel Buren is one of the biggest names in contemporary art, who has presented his work worldwide. Having begun to use 8.7cm-wide stripes as his signature style in 1965, he attract wide attention in 1968 when he exhibited his striped installation work in the city of Paris and its Metro stations. He recently presented a large-scale work at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, “collaborating” with the Frank Gehry architecture, and continues to tackle new challenges across the globe. In 2007, he was awarded the Praemium Imperiale (Painting Category).
