Masayuki Koorida: Beyond Existence at Meijer Gardens
May 25 – August 19, 2018
From the Meijer Gardens website http://www.meijergardens.org/calendar/beyond-existence/
Born in Kyoto, Japan, but now working in Shanghai, China, Masayuki Koorida is a major talent and dedicated figure in Contemporary sculpture. Celebrated for partially carved and polished boulders like Existence, permanently sited in The Richard & Helen DeVos Japanese Garden, Koorida has a broader repertoire that includes highly geometric pieces in a variety of materials and exquisite, large-scale drawings.
All aspects of his work are on display in this exhibition organized with the artist exclusively for Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. Although well known in Asia and Europe, this will be among Koorida's first exhibitions in the United States. Taken together with the multi-part Existence in the Japanese garden, this is a must-see experience.
