Stimulate your senses with pots. Exhibition “Tsubo-ru” at SFT Gallery, The National Art Center, Tokyo 

The key word is “Kenssei no kyosho. Tomoo Shoken, a gallerist, and Hirofumi Watanabe, an art director, who have been planning various exhibitions of vases from their unique perspectives, plan an exhibition of vases and start the “Tsubo-ru Project” with more than 10 creators. They will propose vases as a new culture. At the core of the project is the desire to convey the “primitive strength” of vases made of clay and fire, as the world is undergoing major changes. As the first phase of the project, we will hold the “Tsuboru” exhibition at the SFT Gallery on the ground floor of the National Art Center, Tokyo from March 24, 2021, introducing 200 new vases by seven artists. At the venue, “TSUBORU” T-shirts will be available for purchase, and a record stand that plays music by analyzing the unevenness and form of the pots with AI will be staged. The exhibition will be suitable for those who are interested in pottery and vessels, as well as young people and foreigners who have not been exposed to pots before.
