Beautiful Woman Looking Back Over her Shoulder
– By Susumu Ikegami
Created in an attempt to harmonize modern sculpture with the traditional street scene that is becoming increasingly rare in Japan, this work is reminiscent of a woman just slightly rolling her hips in passing. A sensor inside the sculpture causes it to light up when cars or pedestrians pass, drawing further attention after dusk. As a street corner sculpture, “Beautiful Woman” has become a focal point in the town, offering both residents and visitors a friendly and familiar contact with art.
