Workshop  -Polish Your Stones: Shapes of the Sea, Shapes of People-

on Thu.(public holiday), 11th August


As a side event of Naoya Ishikawa Solo Exhibition Person Not Independent, which will be held from Saturday, 20th August, a workshop entitled “Polish Your Stones: Shapes of the Sea, Shapes of People” will be held on Thursday and public holiday, 11th August.

In this workshop, we will prepare stones brought from the beach in Kamakura and from Ishikawa’s studio in advance, and participants will polish these stones. The polished stones will be displayed by Ishikawa at a later date in the exhibition space as an installation work titled Shapes of the Sea, Shapes of People. This will be a collaborative exhibition between Ishikawa and the participants.

Polish stones to find its original color and brilliance. Polished stones will become works of art. Please join us for a workshop that will give you a special experience. A stone that has been tossed in the ocean by waves will have a rounded and natural beauty, and a stone that has been touched by human hands will have a unique shape and shine according to the will of the person who made it.


Message from Naoya Ishikawa, Sculptor

The fallen stone is actually covered with countless scratches and stains, and the stone’s natural color is not showing. Rediscover the original color of the stone by polishing it with a file to eliminate those scratches. When the stone shines after polishing, that is the true brilliance of the stone.

The installation work, Shapes of the Sea, Shapes of People, is an attempt to put together stones naturally polished by the sea and stones polished by people. You will love both the shape of the sea and the shape of people.
