This event has ended.

Growing tired of the established form of woodblock printing Hideo Hagiwara began to attach the wood shavings from the cutting process upon the woodblock itself, opening up the expressions of this medium to new limits. Since the 1980s his practice has focused upon motifs of stars, space and the universe, creating a twinkling galaxy from wood scraps.
