Set to music, this recreation of an historic artwork involves smoke rings hovering in the Turbine Hall, lit by coloured lights before dissolving in the air. Motonaga imagined this as a painting made from smoke. The restaging of this artwork is part of the UNIQLO Tate Play: Mega Please Draw Freely Picnic weekend, occurring regularly throughout the event.
Ei Arakawa is inspired by Motonaga and the other members of the Gutai group in UNIQLO Tate Play: Mega Please Draw Freely. Arakawa creates a theatrical pine forest in the Turbine Hall which includes recreations of pine trees used in Noh Theatre.
