Project 19 : Tatzu Nishi

ID
P19

Project Overview
For Project 19, Tatzu Nishi (born Tazro Niscino but working under a variety of names including Tatzu Oozu, and Tatsurou Bashi), the artist reinvented two sculptures titled War and peace and in between. Standing on Art Gallery Road outside the entrance to the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Gilbert Bayes’ equestrian monuments were transformed. Visitors climbed ramps to enter rooms that Nishi had constructed around the giant bronze figures. Bayes’ The offerings of peace was reset within a domestic living room and The offerings of war within a bedroom setting, making the sculptures appear unexpected and astonishing.
