Early Cloth: Tapa and Felt
at LIXIL Gallery 1 & 2 (Kyobashi, Nihonbashi area)
(2017-12-07 - 2018-02-24)

Tapa and felt are early types of fabric that were made by hand and utilized commonly available plants or wool. It is believed that they were used long before the technology for weaving was developed. This exhibition looks at tapa and felt that has been used in daily life since ancient times on the South Pacific islands and in regions of Southeast Asia, showing the attraction of tapa and felt as simple, strong, non-woven fabrics. Displayed in the gallery are some 60 precious examples collected by Shigeki Fukumoto, who has commuted to the South Pacific islands for over 30 years to research tapa, and Goro Nagano, who researched pressed felt technologies in Southeast Asia primarily in the 1990s. Visitors will be struck by the toughness of these early cloths and by their designs and textures, which combine boldness and delicacy to attain a beauty symbolic of ethnic culture. Through these non-woven fabrics infused with ethnic traditions and skills inherited over many years, the exhibition offers a chance to encounter the ancient beginnings of human technology and the arts of dyeing and weaving. [Related Event] Talk Event “The story before woven textiles - From field work” Date: Jan. 27 (Sat), 2018, 14:00-15:30 Speakers: Fukumoto Shigeki (dye artist, director of The Society for Ethno-Arts), Hiroko Iwatate (director of Iwatate Folk Textile Museum) Venue: AGC Studio, 2F Kyobashi soseikan, 2-5-18 Kyobashi, Chuo, Tokyo 104-0031 Admission: Free (booking required) Capacity: 80 *Please see the official website for booking and further information. *Event in Japanese.

The Shining Boro – Cloth of Life

The Shining Boro – Cloth of Life
at Amuse Museum (Ueno, Yanaka area)
(2017-03-31 - 2018-03-25)

In Aomori Prefecture, there were quilted cloths called “Bodo” or “Bodoko” made by sewing pieces of hemp and cotton cloth once worn by generations of ancestors. Bodoko were used as sheets to lie on during the night, spread over straw or dry leaves on the floor. They were also often also used during childbirth as the sheet for the baby to be delivered on. Receiving the baby with these multi-layered cloths once worn by long-gone ancestors carried the message to the baby that she did not enter the world alone. In addition to the Boro patched clothing collection of Mr. Chuzaburo Tanaka, this exhibition presents valuable Bodoko owned by Mr. Toshio Kojima (Gallery Kojima) and Ms. Sayomi Okamune (Art gallery Hagisha). The stunning world of art unexpectedly created from these “shabby” clothes represents the precise opposite of today’s consumer culture.

In addition to extravagant dresses and hand-colored prints that depict trends and fashions of the period, viewers can look forward to Renoir’s painting of a woman in exotic costume, Manet’s portrait of a dignified singer on a street corner, and works by Mary Cassatt, an American artist who made a name for herself in Paris.

"Boro" Exhibition

(image)
"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.
