A large neon works, "the illuminating Gas...(after Oculist Witnesses)" which was exhibited from September 7th in the lobby of the museum, will now go on until the end of April4, 2021. Enjoy the dynamic dialogue between the architectual space of the Pola Museum and the works.

Take a look a one-week time-lapse videoin 40 seconds that shows how the art display at the atrium lobby has been builtup.

Wyn Evans began his career producing experimental film works in the late '70s, moving to include sculpture, installation, and photography as he expanded his range of expression in the '90s. Language, perception, and temporal awareness provide the conceptual foundation for Wyn Evans' diverse practice. His works escort us into a total sensory experience in which the artist intervenes and transforms the space with subtle, elegant, and poetic gestures. In addition to a display in the Atrium Gallery, the exhibition will include a large-scale neon work in the museum's entrance hall. Conceived as a dynamic dialogue with the facility's architectural spaces, the exhibition marks the artist's first solo show in a Japanese museum.
