Long -eared goldfish <br /> Goldfish that did not exist in nature, born in the human world. It expresses the culture that collects its beautiful appearance.

Ochihana Ryusui <br /> A'waterfall'created in the center of the city. Forget the hustle and bustle of the city and spend a moment adoring the beauty of the dripping water.

Hyakuka Ryoran <br /> Replace the flowers with flowers. Infinitely colorful and gorgeous goldfish. The intersection of light and color has been reconstructed with the expression of origami of traditional Japanese culture.

Seven Sages of the Bamboo Forest <br /> A majestic space centered on tranquility is composed of a series of lanterns and a bamboo grove to provide a pure place where knowledge sublimates.

For the first collaboration, we welcomed Mr. Shogo Kariyazaki, a leading Japanese flower arrangement artist.
Shogo Kariyazaki, who has been celebrating 40 years of flower arrangement, and Art Aquarium, which has been counting for 15 years, are planning to hold events during the period to liven up the collaboration realized in each commemorative year.

■ Shogo Kariyazaki x Flowerium <br /> With Shogo Kariyazaki, one of Japan's leading flower arrangement artists, aiming to express the unique art of the Art Aquarium and the evolved art by co-starring traditional Japanese art. Collaboration has been realized. At Art AQUARIUM, we have exhibited works with the theme of "flowers", but this is the first attempt by a kadoka to produce flowers using fresh flowers. The ikebana of tranquility and the goldfish of motion, which are the opposite, but mixed and synergistic, welcome you.
Please enjoy the collaboration between the fantastic world view of Art AQUARIUM and Shogo Kariyazaki's delicate and bold style and unique sense of color.

● Flower Rium <br /> This time, "Flower Rium" directed by Shogo Kariyazaki is a new work that will be unveiled at the Art AQUARIUM Museum GINZA for the first time. It is a work in which a goldfish dances in an aquarium that looks like a vase.

[Comment by Mr. Kariyazaki]
We are excited about the world's first collaboration project between Goldfish and Shogo Kariyazaki. I can't help but look forward to co-starring goldfish, flowers, and the finished beauty created by this world. We hope that all visitors will enjoy the world's first collaboration between goldfish and ikebana, a world-class Japanese art.

・ Providing music

For the music that directs the venue of "Art AQUARIUM MEXT GINZA", the composer, Mr. Cornish, provided the original music. Delicate and mysterious music stimulates extraordinary sensations. Please enjoy the fantasy world of Art Aquarium from your ears.

[Comment by Mr. Cornish]
I am very honored to write the music. In creating music that colors the space, I focused on the duality of "goldfish." On the other hand, the fragility of small things, the superhuman strength that grows to the size of a carp, and the charm of artificially made things that behave like natural objects and keep people's hearts. , I regarded it as a mysterious creature with many contradictory concepts. The composition was a journey that traced the mysteries with lighting and scent, and searched for and gathered together illusions, which was an invaluable experience. I would love to hear from you. I sincerely hope that this exhibition will be an oasis of time in times of hardship.
