Midori Komachi is a violinist, writer and composer. She has performed as a soloist extensively throughout Europe and Japan, and has appeared on various media, including BBC Radio 3, NHK TV and TV Tokyo. As a bilingual writer, Midori's book ‘Delius as I knew him’ was published in Japan. As a composer, Midori has collaborated with artists in various genres, and her compositions have been released by the Nonclassical label. Midori co-wrote the music for Maggie's Centre's LIFE Exhibition which has toured around the UK throughout 2017-2019. Midori is also a presenter on her classical music programme ‘Midori Selects’ on British Airways in-flight entertainment.

About Sculpture in the City

Sculpture in the City is an urban sculpture park, set amongst the architectural landmarks in the City’s insurance district. This dynamic project, where artworks are installed for up to a year, responds to the area’s ever-evolving urban environment by making use of newly created public spaces, or spaces previously unused or inaccessible. These sculptures create an art trail woven through the contemporary towers and historic alleyways of the City’s oldest working district. The sculptures add new layers of meaning, playing with the area’s identity and encouraging visitors to see this part of the City in a new light.

Sculpture in the City is delivered by the City of London Corporation in partnership with Aon, Aviva, Beaumont, Bloomberg, British Land, Brookfield Properties, CC Land, Hiscox, London & Oriental, Nuveen Real Estate, Tenacity, Tower 42 and TwentyTwo.

The full line-up of artists is as follows: Salvatore Arancio, Reza Aramesh, Elisa Artesero, Shaun C Badham, Jyll Bradley, Nathan Coley, Marisa Ferreira, Leo Fitzmaurice, Kevin Francis Gray, Clare Jarrett, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Michael Lyons, Nancy Rubins, Nina Saunders, Jennifer Steinkamp, Do Ho Suh, Jonathan Trayte (autumn 2019), Patrick Tuttofuoco and Lawrence Weiner.
