Tadashi Kawamata: The Nest

Amos Rex, Helsinki

  • 7.5.2022–4.9.2022

The Nest by Japanese sculptor Tadashi Kawamata is a two-part sculptural constellation constructed from reclaimed materials. Attaching itself to the Lasipalatsi (Glass Palace) building, the work is an alien presence in a familiar setting.


Tadashi Kawamata likens the installation to an avalanche of scrap crashing into the clean, white-washed facade of the 1930s functionalist building. Through subtle gestures and a play with scale the artist opens our eyes to the hidden potential in our surroundings.

Since the 1980s, Kawamata has carried out site-specific projects all over the world adding layers and structures to natural and urban spaces often in collaboration with local groups. For an annex to the Palace of Versailles, he created a waterfall of apple crates collected from local fruit vendors, and for Centre Pompidou he built makeshift wooden treehuts onto its iconic steel facade.
