Purple Diary

[September 11 2010]

Art Production Fund

In collaboration with Yvonne Force Villareal’s Aty Production Fund, Yoshitomo Nara created two large outdoor sculptures situated on New York City’s Park Avenue. White Ghost is meant to recall traditional Japanese sculptures placed as guardians outside shrines. Nara successfully combines playfulness and monumentality with smiling glossy white figures on top of severe stone bases. On view at both 67th and 70th Streets, until November 5, 2010, New York.
