Pascale Marthine Tayou‘s 2009 Reverse City installation involves rows of giant pencils hanging from thick beams in Matsudai, Joyama, Japan. On each pencil is written the name of one of the countries of the world.
“The giant pencils are variously colored; some are short, some are tall. This town of pencils is fixed into a stainless steel frame and hovers, detached from Nature, at a height of about two meters. Suspended upside-down, the points of this colorful city are aimed at human visitors who, looking up at it, feel both awed and threatened.”
