MAM PROJECT 006 / NISHI TATZU
"Japanese artist Nishi Tatzu, who has been based in Cologne, Germany, since 1987, has a reputation for creating audacious and often humorous projects in public spaces. In the past, he has constructed temporary rooms and even houses around existing outdoor objects, like streetlights or monuments. Passersby are invited inside the rooms and given the mind-spinning experience of viewing, for example, a streetlight, a sculpture or even the roof of a car, within a completely artificial, indoor setting. He has also converted a freight container into a functioning cafe, suspending it in midair from a crane to give patrons a rather precarious aerial view of their town."
