Plentitude/ 萌芽HOUGA: Sweden and Japan Showcase Shibori Together

4AA3-170

WSN Member, Reiko Hara will be exhibiting her work in the Japanese and Swedish shibori exhibition titled, “Plentitude -HOUGA“, at the Swedish Embassy in Tokyo. The show will close tomorrow, but you should still visit their website for more information about the Sweden Shibori Society, and the participating artists!

When Ms. Eva Lagnert, constructivist teacher from the National Arts Polytechnic University of Stockholm was assigned to teach the first “Shibori” course at Konstfack in Stockholm in 2002, it gained a lot of interest from many artists living in Sweden. In 2009, as a result of the amount of positive feedback, Lagnert founded “The Sweden Shibori Society.”

The concept of the exhibition was proposed as “PLENITUDE” and in response to it, the Japan side proposed “萌芽HOUGA(sprout)” with the wish of creating more of a creative relationship between both countries.
