In the end of September 2012, Kozo Nishino stayed in Shanghai for installation of 3 pieces in a newly renovated museum ‘Power Station of Art’ in Shanghai, which publicly opened on the same day as the opening of 9th Biennale, also as the first public contemporary art museum in main land China. The building was initially the site of Nanshi Power Plant (set-up in 1897). It faces Huangpu River which is the main water source and symbol of Shanghai. Nishino’s kinetic sculpture entitled ‘On Becoming the Wind, Shanghai’ with a form of bird’s wings was installed on the terrace (5th FL) right above the main entrance. It is welcoming every single audience. ‘Memory of Sky, Shanghai’ made of titanium alloy with truss-supported structure is also in the show until Mar 2013 on 2nd FL of the museum.
