On July 25 and 26, Yuri Kinoshita, a Kyoto-born artist, will be presenting her piece Furyu in Lake Union Park. The art work, defined as a “Floating Teahouse” unites performative artwork with Kinoshita’s renowned light design. Kinoshita states, on her website, “My lighting designs are mostly Japanese based light design with textiles and papers from Japanese fabrics and Japanese paper but, I also search out interesting fabrics and materials from around the world to incorporate into [my design].” A traditional tea ceremony will be performed onboard the floating edifice, and is sure to be magical. Held from 3 to 8 pm, I imagine the work to be radiant against the evening sky.
Furyu is a Seattle City Artist Project and will be held at the Lake Union Model Boat Pond.
Yuri Kinoshita has previously been featured at Traver Gallery, The SAM (Elles exhibition), BAM, and the Seattle Design Center.
