Akie Tsuzuki Kayo Miyashita

Eleventh Paper Exhibition


Welcome to the poetic space created by the two artists, made of eleven words and paper .


Kayo Miyashita continues to produce and present unique, light and sophisticated sculptural works using paper and wire.


Another person, Akie Tsuzuki , learned the technique as a bookbinding artist in France and Switzerland, and then worked on many beautiful jobs while responding to the requests of various people.


The two have an atelier in the same building, and they have a relationship of touching and talking with each other's works on a daily basis.

In this exhibition, a space was created in which the creator's point of view was fully reflected from the idea of furniture to the production by choosing words.


Fragments that are found and picked up by their delicate viewpoints and fresh impressions of small events that occur in the process of touching things .


I am impressed by the wonderfulness and technique of the sense of balance for carefully spinning things that are small and are usually overlooked .

We hope that you will slowly follow the messages of the two artists and bring back the sensibilities of a fresh treasure in your daily life .
