Jun Kitagawa, an artist from Japan, stepped into art world accidentally. For sake of disposition to an inventory of a pile of T-shirts, he walked around town to “covering up” nude statues. While, such acts maybe considered as vandalism in our culture but also a stunt. Therefrom, Kitagawa started his creations of installation art in public spaces. The most attention-grabbing work is an ongoing series of giant zippers in various publics spaces. The first zipper work is an eidetic unzipped circular zipper painted on a tunnel wall. It is well inspired from mural art and interprets a three-dimensional visual effect to us. Then more related zipper works emerged. An invisible dark water beneath a pond’s surface. The concealed areas in a building’s framework. Kitagawa offer an uncanny window for our imagination with blending the reality. His works unleash the potential artistic aesthetic of zipper and give us a fresh perspective to see the world.
