Shifu Exhibition

“White at the Beginning” / Photo: Isao Hirachi
Gallery SU
February27(Sat) – March14 (Sun), 2021
Closed: March2 (Tue) and 9 (Tue)

Shifu is a cloth made by tearing Japanese washi paper on which words are written in ink, making it into thread, and weaving it together with silk thread.
The words that remain as traces on the cloth can no longer be read as letters, but are freed from meaning.
Mayuko Fujii says, “I think there is a truth that dwells in unreadableness.
The exhibition will feature 17 shifu that secretly contain sentences describing what she felt in each season. I hope shifu will touch your heart.
