The Tale of a Miniature Universe | “folding cosmos”
By “folding cosmos” we try to imply a miniature universe and exhibit our ideas and work in a minimum space in a Japanese house; an alcove. It’s not just an exhibition, however. You’re encouraged to have an experience of interacting and talking with other people within a calming environment.
The motif of our concept is the One-Mat-Room, or a single tatami mat of an alcove, used as part of the last residence by Takeshiro Matsuura, an explorer living in the closing days of the Tokugawa shogunate. Over a cup of tea in that tiny space, you can appreciate the contemporary idiom of our artists in a quiet atmosphere and share your experience with other people.
We originally started to remember September 11th, but now we are strongly praying for Japan’s rehabilitation from the massive earthquake on March 11th.
