Japanese paper art installed at The Wave in Coventry

A JAPANESE paper installation was unveiled at The Wave swimming pool last Wednesday.

The artwork has been created by Japanese artist Hiroko Imada, and was produced especially for a Japanese Festival for Coventry Schools that celebrates the Tokyo Olympics.

The Making Waves artwork now sits inside The Wave’s reception, on display for all visitors to the attraction to see.

Laura Williams, Centre Manager at The Wave, added: “It’s especially fantastic to have the artwork at The Wave during Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture.

“It will be a focal piece in our facility and will be showcased for the years to come.”

Hiroko said: “I am so happy to see my artwork displayed inside The Wave.

“This project continues with the interactive installation at Coventry Cathedral where ‘waves’ are represented with woodblock printing as a symbol of the way out of the pandemic and our hopes for the future.”

That piece, created with the help of Coventry schoolchildren, will be installed at the Cathedral next month.
