Designer Shiro Kuramata (1934-1991) has been pioneering in the field of design, including commercial spaces, furniture, and products since the mid-1960s. The recent exhibition at the Setagaya Art Museum," The Work of Shiro KURAMATA: A Microcosmos of Memory," which ended its run recently, not only showcased representative furniture pieces but also introduced image sketches and dream diaries, offering glimpses into the sources of his creativity, and was a great success. (The exhibition will tour the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design starting from February 17 and will move to the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto in June.) Since 2020, Toki-no-Wasuremono has been editioning the first, second, and third collections of “Shiro Kuramata Cahier,” collections of silkscreen prints based on Kuramata's precious sketches, and is currently working on the fourth collection (10 prints) of “Shiro Kuramata Cahier”. It will be unveiled at the Art Fair Tokyo, and we kindly invite you to view them in person and make reservations (reservation details will be announced soon).

Emerging architect Kengo Sato (b. 1989) has held solo exhibition twice at the Toki-no-Wasuremono gallery, consistently producing pinhole cameras. While this marks his debut at the art fair, he has created five cameras for this occasion by combining wood and iron on antique chairs, venturing into installation art. In his architectural endeavors, he was selected in a competition for the Expo Osaka Kansai to design a seaside satellite studio, heightening expectations for his future endeavors.

Sculptor Takeshi Haguri (b. 1957) works with traditional wood carving techniques using camphor wood, employing chisels and carving knives, while his disciple, Miki Nagasaki, applies delicate hand painting to his “Otokogi (Chivalry)” series. At last year's Art Fair Tokyo 2023, he presented the largest sculpture to date, “Otokogi (Chivalry) - Tamashii (Soul),” measuring 2.25 meters, which was acquired by an American collector. In this exhibition, you will have the opportunity to view both medium and small-sized new works.
