Sora Versailles

February 13, 2019

FAENA CLOUD BUILDING Commissioned by Faena Art  

Artwork title: “Sora Versailles”, 133 x103 ft, printed mesh

VERSAILLES HOTEL

3425 COLLINS AVENUE, MIAMI BEACH

 

This large-scale installation examines perception, as the historic Versailles Building is transformed into the sky itself, becoming void-like or transparent. The installation investigates one’s relationship to time as sunset and sunrise are depicted on the four sides of the building.

The Japanese kanji  is pronounced “Sora” and means sky or heaven. This word also has another reading, pronounced “kū” and means “emptiness or void”. Void is one of the five elements (earth, water, fire, wind, void). “Sora Versailles” installation is inspired by the idea of both sky and emptiness. In Buddhism as well as in Quantum Physics, the fundamental nature of reality is that all constituent forms that make up the universe are temporary, a concept termed ‘Sunyata.’ Artist Miya Ando pays homage to the  building’s original architect Roy France’s design philosophy of “let in the air and sun” as she wraps one of Miami’s most iconic buildings in clouds.
