Event contents


The Japanese alphabet of serisawa銈kai
-Kazushige Kaneko collection

serisawa銈kai (1895-1984) is colorman on behalf of Japan, and the evaluation does not remain in the country, and, commencing with Paris exhibition where we put great success in during the lifetime, private exhibition is held in the United States, the U.K., Russia. Strong model and reliable composition are characteristic, and style that drew concept called "kataesen" in authorization of holder of an important intangible cultural property (living national treasure) in 1956 considers depth and stillness at bottom while gorgeous color, fun color are bright…In fact, these were words that Serizawa recited about colorfully-dyed pattern, but aspect done *jutsu here seems to be just piled up in work of Serizawa. Probably it lets you choose way of dyeing, and Serizawa pursues view of the world that it continued longing for throughout the life in own work, and is this not because it demonstrated?

We prepared for three keywords at this exhibition to have you taste them slowly and carefully. "Design" "thing" "trip" - - all are main themes of Serizawa. However, we tie different image to wide contents about not only form but also technique, the generation, all of product area and opposite cut apart and may let you update. We expect that each serisawa銈kaizo is described while who looked at this display meeting various sides of Serizawa as Serizawa just dismantles function of letter in approach to "letter sentence", and having left for the essence while showing new aspect, and binding context together.
