Tamiko Kawata (JP): A Quiet Room

Ke Sklárně 3213/15, Praha MeetFactory

7. 8. - 31. 8. 2014 19:00

A Quiet Room transforms the space of Kostka gallery in a similar logic: it creates a quiet, meditative place; necropolis of old materials, still new life arises here. Paper waterfall forms a kind of backdrop to a sculptural paraphrase of the Japanese domestic hearthstone, the center of family life, home, peace, evenings spent together with beloved ones. What more is there to ask from mono no aware, than to stop and just be a part of, at least for a while.

Curator: Zuzana Jakalová
