This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition “Resistance of Fog: Fujiko Nakaya” held from October 27, 2018 to January 20, 2019. In addition to abundant illustrations of fog sculptures and videos, this catalogue delves into the spirituality of Nakaya’s works through various discussions and covers her activities. The contrast between the Mincho and Gothic typefaces used in the logo and the body text embodies the artist’s keen and strong will. The light and soft matte textured paper used for the cover and body represents the “fog,” the masterpiece of Fujiko Nakaya. The font size of the body text is large and loosely organized, and the gutter is designed to open easily.
