Tenri Cultural Institute is excited to announce a joint exhibition by Rieko Yashiro and Nobuko Hiroi.

 

Fiber artist, Rieko Yashiro, is inspired by the art and design of television programs and theater stages. In this show, Yashiro presents three pieces that depict reincarnation. Utilizing paper, fabric, and threads, the work is inspired by Buddhism. The color back indicates the world in Hades, red represents the bright and sunny world, and the light beige tone show the everyday ordinary world. Yashiro hopes that you will experience her art through the colors and will look for fiber art in mainstream culture in the future. Yashiro’s works were also featured on NHK’s “Kohaku,” the annual New Year’s Eve television special.

 

Nobuko Hiroi is an artist living in Kyoto, who creates art using natural threads and fibers. She uses a freestyle modeling approach, starting with a two or three dimensional shape and embracing the image inspired from the technique and material. Irregular silk threads are cut and tied and woven for this show. The piece shows the production process and includes a few irregular knots on the surface of the fabric. The title, ‘Traveling Textiles,’ refers to the time passed in making the fabric and the space that exists within.
