This event has ended.
We are pleased to have Rentaro Kawamoto Solo Show -Weaving of Time- from March 27, Saturday through April 25, Sunday.
Rentaro Kawamoto creates his works from old clothes collected from various places. He tears old clothes, dye them, and weave a new image using a loom.
Textiles have existed with human activities since ancient times, and the background is the development of human life, culture, technology and materials in that area and at that time. The artist is aiming to incorporate the human activities of this era in which we are living into our works, while thinking about such history and stories.
For this show, titled -Weaving of Time-, Kawamoto explored the relationship between textiles and Kamakura, where he was born and the exhibition will be held, and he found that the spread of Zen Buddhism and tea ceremony in Kamakura during 12-13 centuries brought the development of textile culture. Based on this history, Kawamoto tried to weave time leading to the past, present and future into his works while linking with Zen thought.
