Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Museum is presenting “Mika Ninagawa: A Garden of Flickering Lights” until September 4. The exhibition features Ninagawa’s specially selected plant photographs and video works from 2021 to 2022, taken over the course of the pandemic. Known for her singular sense of color and close-up focus on the fragility and delicacy of plants and flowers, she projects her photographs with a more crystalline aura that sheds shimmering light and soft hues.
