NON, new art solo exhibition, “Weird and Cute Things.”
Collaboration with Tohoku traditional crafts! (Sendai PARCO)

This exhibition is a collaboration of traditional Tohoku crafts “kokeshi lanterns,” “akabeko” and “Tanabata decorations” and Non’s Ribbon Art.

Akabeko” is a traditional craft of the Aizu region of Fukushima Prefecture. The “suspiciously cute appearance” of the bright red body clad in Nonno’s Ribbon art is a must-see.

Five large kokeshi lanterns, each 180 cm tall and 45 cm in circumference, will be on display at this exhibition.

■Non’s comments
For two weeks, we kept tying ribbons.
Surrounded by a vast amount of ribbons, I was immersed in a world of weird and lovely, as if I had been transformed by the ribbons.

And I am happy and very excited to collaborate with traditional craftsmen and artisans in Tohoku. The charm of Japanese harmony and ribbon art go very well together.

When the ribbons were stuck all over Akabeko, something truly monstrous and cute was born.
Please come to the NON Ribbon exhibition in the autumn of art. The traditions of Tohoku and many weird and lovely ribbons are waiting for you.
