August 28–30, 2015 / Sayado Hall, Chiba City Museum of Art, Japan
Improvised installation mixing up the
modern art pieces and the “Japanized” antique pieces at Sayado Hall of
Neo-Renaissance style (originally constructed as the Chiba branch of
Kawasaki Bank in 1927). At the same time, Lucie Rie’s exhibition was
opened in the same building.
This improvisation was successfully over,
and visited by approx. 1200 people through the three days as the
result. Some visitors stated the impression as “It was better than main
exhibition (Lucie Rie) !”, which was actually thankful honor and great
pleasure to the all exhibitors including me as it was also a good start
for doing more events presented by tatami itself.
The concept of this event was “Improvised
installation” as our basic and essential stance for the first time as
tatami’s “off-line” event, so we are going to propose more interesting
plans and perfome at several places based on unique concept. Hope to do
our event around your place soon.
