Please enjoy the exhibition view with some photos and the movies.
The signature textiles of minä perhonen are represented as ocean waves. As our lives and society change with time, textile design responds to these changes and creates an ever-changing landscape.
In this space, minä perhonen's textile designs are freed from their materials to create a story from which various textiles connect with each other. This demonstrates the interconnection of minä perhonen's textile designs even while each textile has its own independent world. The video and sound are created by Yutaka Endo (LUFTZUG) currently based in the Netherlands.
The beginnings of minä perhonen were very modest, always stumbling around in the dark. Each piece of the designs here are connected to the current expression and continues to this day in collaboration with many creators. Please take a look at how it all began.
During the exhibition, Akira Minagawa paints a wall painting. This creation process is shown in the exhibition official web site.
