10,000 1 yen coins
Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Tokyo Japan
Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum is a rental museum run by the city of Tokyo.
In this exhibition, participating artists were required to pay the fee.
I asked organizer to delay my payment so that I can use that money as a material for the piece.
I exchanged 10,000 yen into 10,000 1 yen coins at Fuji Bank, Tokyo. I dropped all the coins from the roof into the courtyard floor behind huge window which looked like a huge showcase.
Few hrs later, I was asked to remove my piece because they were not in contract to use outdoor space and the space I have chosen wasn't rent for the show.
After the exhibition was over, I have received a call from organizer's office explaining that my fee needed to be shipped to Osaka office via mail therefore I'm to pay extra $50 for the shipment handling.
