at Oyama City Kurumaya Museum of Art (Greater Tokyo area)
(2016-04-16 - 2016-06-19)

Pojagi wrapping cloths are a traditional Korean folk craft. Created with geometric patterns and intricate designs, sometimes featuring village maps, they possess an organic beauty reflective of maternal wisdom and familial labor and love. Pojagi are often created from scraps left over from Chima Jeogori dress-making. This exhibition presents historic pojagi from the collection of the Japanese Traditional Dyeing and Weaving Promotion Foundation, along with photographs of artist Haji Oh’s grandmother, mother, and aunt in Chima Jeorgori. These images question personal relationships to objects from the perspectives of the body, mind, identity, and memory.

at Diesel Art Gallery (Shibuya area)

Gentle, rough, frail, strong. In a space of various expressions come together the interior products such as lights, furniture, or dishware…forming a certain ambiance of mood and emotion. The combination of ceramic tile floor, plaster wall, and wood shelf creates gentleness in its classic appearance, black & white pictures printed on the wall and sculpture with solid color express at times the course of ephemeral decay and its resistance.




"Boro" Exhibition

"Boro" Exhibition
at Amuse Museum (Ueno, Yanaka area)

"Boro" is now becoming an international phrase, originated from Japanese snowy north area, meaning the patched clothes that people back then used for many generations in a household by adding stitches and/or pieces of cloth on it over and over. The word “Boro” now also has an artistic sense to it, highly rated among the field of the textile art design, and requested for purchase by various artists and collectors. Boro is patched clothing with a lot of small cloths here and there, but nothing fancy like today’s quilted or patched works. It was made purely for the practical purposes of retaining warmth in the snowy areas and for making it last as long as possible where it was hard to obtain any other sorts of cloth. When we review its practicality and design from today’s point of view, we are able to realize its incredible sophistication. Amuse Museum is exhibiting Boro for the first time after a century has passed since its last use. It contains no waste, and this is what is called “Yuyo-no-Bi" (Beauty of Practicality), a concept which we seem to have forgotten already, the opposite of today’s prevailing consumer culture.
