Mineo Mizuno: Harmony

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents a new outdoor installation, Mineo Mizuno: Harmony. For several years, Mineo Mizuno has lived on Fort Mountain Ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The intense beauty of the idyllic forest has inspired the artist’s latest body of work, which includes interventions across the property using ceramics, fallen trees, and manzanita shrubs removed to avert fires. For the LACMA installation, Mizuno transplants elements of this immersive environment to Los Angeles. Tea House, like an earlier one he built on the ranch, is his interpretation of the traditional Japanese structure. Its open, organic form balances the seclusion needed to experience the tea ceremony with the powerful presence of the natural surroundings.
