Tatzu Nishi and Public Art Fund have announced a monumental new project in New York City’s Columbus Circle.
Pictured above is a conceptual drawing/photograph of the artist’s last intervention, “Hotel Ghent”:
Tazu Rous, also known as Tatzu Nishi, has developed ‘hotel ghent’, a temporary structure surrounding the clock face of the belltower belonging to ghent, belgium’s sint-pieters train station. in this spatial encounter, the circa 1912 clock belonging to the bustling transit stop has been built into the center of a small rectangular room by the japanese-born and berlin-based artist as a relaxed setting for an up-close interaction with the previously inaccessible structure. for ‘hotel ghent’, rous created the room to function as both a private hotel suite in the evenings and stopping point for visitors of TRACK: a contemporary city conversation between the hours of 12:00 (noon) and 18:00 (6pm).
