HAPPENINGText: Yuki Ishida

Katsuki Tanaka

This work is by Katsuki Tanaka. This work looks like a face even if you see it upside-down. There is a funny episode that Afghan craftsman couldn’t understand the trick and kept weaving it wrongly for the first few months.

Tadanobu Asano

This work is by Tadanobu Asano who says “when I design a rug next time, I want to make the one in which a rug craftsman is drawn”. “I would like to keep doing the project like this. I appreciate the opportunity to work with people who even don’t know the face”.

In Yayoi Deki’s work, human faces are drawn with a gradation of a warm colour but a dark line is suddenly appeared in the upper middle. Maybe it’s a mistake of a craftsman.

Originally, a rug is a thing used in daily life being felt and enjoyed with the four senses. This exhibition is literally an exhibition of rugs which “exhibits” them but I hope I can have an opportunity to “feel” it by sitting on or laying down on the rugs as well.
