Yuki Muraoka is involved in the “Shinjuku re “Wa” style project,” a project that focuses on the traditional craft of “SOME” (dye), which has flourished along the Kanda and Myoshoji Rivers in Shinjuku City. This project focuses on the traditional craft of “SOME” that has flourished along the Kanda and Myoshoji Rivers in Shinjuku City, and considers a new way of “Wa” that will lead to the future. One of the projects, “Nuno wo Torimono Monogatari (Stories Surrounding Cloth),” has received a grant from the Tokyo University of the Arts’ “I LOVE YOU” project and will participate in an exhibition at the Tokyo University of the Arts Museum.
This project focuses on Japan’s unique sustainable culture, and is primarily an archive of “dyeing” by filmmaker Yasutaka Kubota, with the aim of preserving the techniques and thoughts of the artist for future generations.
In this exhibition, we will showcase the works recorded by Mr. Kubota as well as those of five artists (Ryota Kido, Sora Goto, Pig Iron Takahashi, Koichiro Tada, and Yuki Muraoka) who are participating in a separate exhibition themed on the future of “dye” within the “Shinjuku re “Wa” style project, and explore the appeal of “dye” from the diverse perspectives of each artist.
