Event contents

Art of uchu*kaichikosoden in bowl

With space in bowl, we abandon all decoration and beautiful form and arrest the infinite world caused using bowl which completed molding while trimming soil by molding by hand molding into more by the bowl definitely like space when it is organic space wide endlessly.

In other words, we make one tea. Partner drinks the tea. Two all of relations rotates in bowl by the act. Human thought while we stare in the bowl has greatly deep meaning as imagination is not possible elsewhere, and space and the infinite world that you should call right open.

*chawan created by person called long Jiro spreads out with form called transmission from father to son to date 450 years ago. We tell secret and the art such as art or study only to one of own children, and transmission from father to son is what secret elsewhere do and do not express and is alone child who inherits dai even if one child is not child literally, and devolution is to tell from generation to generation.

** where production has been continued by such a way of thinking for many years has long tradition, however it may be said that they are continuations of discontinuity that is not cleared up by the word tradition. For charges of each which begins with long Jiro, and counts 15s, the present age makes trial and error in the inside called "the present age", and creation continues.

We consider modernity in transmission from father to son by seeing successive "now - present age" for the first Jiro Yonaga beginning in viewpoint from the present age by book exhibition. You can see art of ** produced definitely by a series of discontinuity that is not tradition and tradition.
