About

At Mie Prefectural Art Museum this summer, meet a world-famous Dutch artist, Theo Jansen, and his “Strandbeests -beach animal- “. Strandbeests are giant artificial creatures that can walk by means of the wind power. We explore the fascination of the Jansen’s creation with the special exhibits, such as the new series of Strandbeests presented for the first time in Japan, as well as those from the early periods in the 90’s and 00's, sketches showing the artist’s original ideas, and parts that support their walking mechanism.
This is the first solo exhibition of Theo Jansen in the Chubu-Kinki district of Japan. It will be the perfect experience for the family with kids during summer vacation, and more importantly, the great chance for every visitor to encounter the widely acclaimed contemporary art interplaying with science and nature.
