Chihiro Iwasaki, Children Peeping Through a Hedge, from Tonari ni Kita Ko (Will You Be My Friend?), Shikosha, 1970
plaplax employs assorted media, such as video and space, to create interactive art focusing on children’s play. For this exhibition, the group gives form to an exhibit with a focus on the keyword “play” that explores new frontiers in picture book-making while enjoying Chihiro Iwasaki’s watercolor techniques and other innovative methods.
Exhibition Series: Life
In 2018, Chihiro Art Museum (Tokyo, Azumino), in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Chihiro Iwasaki’s birth, will explore a new type of exhibition in collaboration with artists active in various fields, all of whom are engaged in activities that focus on the theme of “life.” These artists are all producing new creations inspired by Chihiro Iwasaki, whose sensibilities resonate among them. Through the Museum’s collaboration with these seven artist teams, we will see the unveiling of a new Chihiro Iwasaki world.
