*KOTARO NUKAGA will reopen from May 12(Wed).
A new series of cut-out in the motif of yabutsubaki camellias. The Seto Inland Sea’s unique environment, where Kyoji Takubo visited during the renovation project of Kotohirayama, was calm because of its warm climate, and islands with gentle ridges. As if responding to this environment, yabutsubaki bloomed with its dignified presence. Takubo says that he read the cultural features of the land from this flower and thought of it as “the flower in its existence with earth and water”; which then became an important material for him. Whilst changing its material and method, this is a motif that appears repeatedly in his works, such as drawings using sepia color, and mosaic made by natural stones. Takubo’s new ‘Landscape Art’ will beautifully raise its curtain with this one and only yabutsubaki.
