ERIKO HORIKI Exhibition – Prayers through Washi

ERIKO HORIKI Exhibition – Prayers through WashiTokyo 2012

Large-scale original washi work measuring 10 meters in diameter and inspired by the sun nurturing all life on our planet Earth. A gentle slope spirals around the walls of the open exhibition space allowing visitors to look down on the work and experience a changing viewpoint as they walk from the ground floor to the 2nd floor 2; to enhance this effect, the piece has a low-level structure. The visitor makes their way into the center of the light floor by walking toward the cocoon-shaped washi created to portray the welcoming and farewell to life.
