Revalue Nippon Project:
Hidetoshi Nakata’s Favorite Japanese KOGEI
Panasonic Shiodome Museum
9 April – 5 June 2016
For some time now, Hidetoshi Nakata, football-star-turned creator and producer, has been communicating internationally, as well as in Japan, the attractiveness of Japanese culture and traditions. To further acquaint himself with the subject, he travels throughout the country, meeting artisans, craftpersons and creators.
Every year, his “REVALUE NIPPON PROJECT” brings forth a set of art and craft products of a chosen field, such as: china, washi (Japanese paper), bamboo, paper stencils and lacquer. These creations are the fruit of collaborative efforts made by teams of artists and artisans, creators and producers, with an open and flexible mind.
Throughout the works born out of the project, you may feel the energy and dynamism that shapes a brand-new “beauty of Japan”, bridging the Japanese craft traditions to the future generations.
