The first large-scale retrospective of Fujiko Nakaya’s work is on show at the Art Tower Mito in Japan. The opening of the exhibition followed the ceremony in which she was awarded for the 2018 Praemium Imperiale prize for sculpture.

As the title Resistance of Fog suggests, the presentation celebrates Nakaya’s pioneering work using fog as a sculptural medium, as well as her critique of urban technology and the resulting disconnect from nature. Works on display include documentation of the fog sculpture Pepsi Pavilion (1970), the fog screen installation Opal Loop/Cloud (2002), and the fog performance London Fog (2017).
