Yuko Nishikawa Creates 200 Whimsical Mobiles for an Installation in Brooklyn
Marketing activations come in all shapes and sizes nowadays. Witness Memory Functions, Yuko Nishikawa’s immersive installation commissioned by the Brooklyn Home Company for the Butler Collection, the firm’s latest residential development in Park Slope with 41 condominium units for sale. More than 200 delicate mobiles crafted from paper-pulp waste hang throughout a model apartment, the colors shifting from space to space—varying whites in the living room, happy hues in the primary bedroom. “It’s exciting to display in an environment that will hold and witness living. I like to make work that accompanies ordinary, everyday moments,” says Nishikawa, who dabbled in interiors for Clodagh and Alexandra Champalimaud before launching her eponymous art-and-object studio in 2018. When the Butler installation comes down this month, some mobiles will travel to Heron Arts in San Francisco for Nishikawa’s group show opening July 9; the remainder will be broken down and recycled at her East Williamsburg studio.
