Tatzu Nishi: War and peace and in between

A Kaldor Public Art Project

Since the late 1990s, Tatzu Nishi has been creating out-of-scale and out-of-place encounters in public spaces around the world. He has transformed street lights, parked cars and monuments, building new spaces around them and altering their setting.

Art Exhibition previously on at Art Gallery of New South Wales in Australia.

Born Tatsuro Nishino, he works under a variety of names as part of each project, including Tatzu Nishi, Tatzu Oozu and Tatsurou Bashi. In Sydney, as Tatzu Nishi, he has transformed the Gallery’s two grand equestrian sculptures by Gilbert Bayes, The offerings of peace and The offerings of war, enclosing them in playful constructions that appear like domestic living spaces. Visitors can walk inside to experience the surreal new spaces of Nishi’s War and peace and in between.

A Kaldor Public Art Project in association with the exhibition 40 years: Kaldor Public Art Projects.

2 October 2009 – 14 February 2010 (except Christmas Day 25 December)
