Toru Hatsuta Exhibition


Solo exhibition “Soil Fumi”

2023.3.23 thu. - 26 sun & 3.30 thu. - 4.2 sun.
12:00-18:00 (*Until 17:00 on the last day)

We are pleased to announce the fourth solo exhibition by bamboo craftsman Toru Hatsuda.
Mr. Hatsuda's new work breathes new life into the white bamboo and sooty bamboo that lived from the Edo period to the present day.

As we spend five years and ten years together, we have a lineup of items that you can admire as they change in expression.

This time, we will also have an installation called "Nageire" by flower artist Shiho Yokogawa, and a limited quantity of moon peach tea from "REAL PLANTS", a weed-derived product supervised by Yoko Kawashima, a plant researcher living in Okinawa. I will do it.

Please enjoy the occasional brilliance of life that has arrived at the gallery with the arrival of spring.


Sooty bamboo on white bamboo From the Edo period to the present day, each bamboo carries the memory of the soil of the era in which it lived.The shape of bamboo nurtured in the soil changes over the course of five years and ten years.

I hope you can find the meaning of each moment, just as you reread the Fumi that has arrived from the soil.
