Rediscovering Three-Dimensional Art in Japan

As Western sculpture became widely known in Japan from the Meiji period onwards, were the conventional aesthetic senses consigned to oblivion? The reality and decorativeness of life-sized dolls and netsuke are different from Western realism and the stylized forms of daruma (dolls modeled after Bodhidharma) or manekineko (beckoning cats) lead to contemporary yuru-chara (costumed mascot characters). In this exhibition, three-dimensional art in Japan is explored beyond the frameworks of sculpture and craftwork.

Standing on the Earth, Looking up into the Sky

Tatebayashi is located at the center of the Kanto Plain. Standing in the front garden of our Museum, which corresponds with this flat land, you realize that the earth without anything blocking the view and the vast sky can also be an abstract space reflecting the inside or a story. Through “landscapes” shown in paintings, photographs, and video works by contemporary artists, here, the existence of nature and that of human beings is considered. Projects related to views of the area including Tatebayashi will be introduced and workshops will be held.
