19th May NUNO in Paris

On 19th May I attended the Opening of the NUNO exhibition at the Musée Guimet in Paris, which was a wonderful occasion. Reiko Sudo had come over for the installation of her textile Koi carp which hung above us, circling around and around up into the dome of the museum. It was in fact a re-interpretation of her installation of the Koi carp in the Kennedy Centre in Washington DC. Koi carp kites are flown in Japan on May 5th to celebrate young boys. It was a marvellous experience to watch the delighted faces of the visitors as they entered the room, and the installation was recognised by Le Monde as being one of the 10 top installations in Paris.
