KYO
1983
Stile LIFE (Japan)
Permanent collection of Museum of Modern Art, Saint-Etienne, France (KYO-S1)
A lamp made of handmade washi paper. Handmade washi is light, strong, doesn't change color, flexible, and pervious to light. Treating an old material like washi as a new one creates harmony in the space where East and West meet.
This work places great importance on the gentle, delicate texture of washi, especially the wrinkles and folds that inevitably appear with the passing of time.
