This event has ended.

Takao Kano, a ceramic artist with a background in Kyoto pottery, has dug deeper into his unique “roots” through his experiences in Africa. This will be his 4th solo exhibition at Paku Paku An, and he will be showing his latest “Noyaki (pit firing pottery)” series for the first time. In addition, Keigo Ishibashi, the director of Paku Paku An, personally selects and shows unpublished and rare works from recent years. Visitors will be able to enjoy the “A-side / B-side” of “New Hits & Rare Tracks” by Takao Kano.

In particular, the new work “Noyaki” utilizes the firing method of “Noyaki (pit firing pottery),” which is considered to be the origin of pottery in human history. Kano combines Noyaki with the act of “painting,” which has also been handed down from generation to generation in human history, in order to present a modern version of primitive and primal ceramic works that transcend time and space.
