Eiko and Koma
Eiko and Koma's Naked
Naked is a new "living installation" created by the renowned Japanese-American movement artists Eiko & Koma as part of the Walker Art Center's Event Horizon exhibition showcasing the collections. Commissioned by the Walker, this movement/visual art installation features Eiko & Koma's live bodies in an immersive and charged environment of their own design. It is the duo's first prolonged return to a gallery-based living installation since Breath, a month-long project at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, in 1998. Visitors are invited to stay for a few minutes or the entire day, and return numerous times to experience the piece evolve.
