河本蓮大朗 展 [ 時の布 ]

Rentaro Kawamoto Solo Show -Weaving of Time-

(English follows after Japanese)


Gallery Pictor では2021年3月27日(土)〜4月25日(日)まで、河本蓮大朗の個展 [時の布] を開催いたします。






[時の布] と題した本展では、河本の出身地でもあり開催地となる鎌倉と織物との関係を紐解き、禅宗の伝来と茶の湯の興隆が織物文化の発展に関わっていたことに基づいて、禅の世界とリンクしながら、過去から現在、そして未来へとつながる時間を作品に織り込むことに挑戦します。



本展の開催にあたり、鎌倉五山第一位であり臨済宗建長寺派の大本山、巨福山建長寺(以下、建長寺)にご協力を得て、4月2日から4月4日までの3日間限定で、建長寺・方丈(龍王殿)にて作品を展示させていただくこととなりました。Gallery Pictorでの展示と合わせてご高覧いただきますよう、ご案内申し上げます。

We are pleased to have  Rentaro Kawamoto Solo Show -Weaving of Time- from March 27, Saturday through April 25, Sunday.

Rentaro Kawamoto creates his works from old clothes collected from various places. He tears old clothes, dye them, and weave a new image using a loom.

Textiles have existed with human activities since ancient times, and the background is the development of human life, culture, technology and materials in that area and at that time. The artist is aiming to incorporate the human activities of this era in which we are living into our works, while thinking about such history and stories.

For this show, titled -Weaving of Time-, Kawamoto explored the relationship between textiles and Kamakura, where he was born and the exhibition will be held, and he found that the spread of Zen Buddhism and tea ceremony in Kamakura during 12-13 centuries brought the development of textile culture. Based on this history, Kawamoto tried to weave time leading to the past, present and future into his works while linking with Zen thought.
