Nishijin, Kyoto Myorenji Special Visit “The Chroma and Transparency of the World of One Day and the Dried Insects of the Temple Treasure Exhibition” will be held! A collaboration between glass sculptures by descendants of the Honami family and handicapped art!
The highlight is the mysterious space created by the 17th generation Honami, who inherited the mind of the rare creator Honami, and the art of people with disabilities in the temple. From November 19th to December 4th. On December 3rd and 4th, an exhibition of dried insects, a treasure of the temple, will be held at the main hall.
A special exhibition in the fall of 2022 is being held at Myorenji Temple, the main temple of the Honmon Hokke sect in Nishijin, Kyoto. This exhibition is co-organized by Myorenji Temple and the regional revitalization organization Marugoto Museum, and is planned by Kotokurasu LLC. The highlight is the collaboration between
contemporary glass sculpture art works by Mr. Honami, a descendant of the Honami family, who descended from the rare creator Koetsu Honami, and “Genius Art,” which supports people with disabilities in Nishijin. Both are unique works, but you can spend a mysterious time in harmony with the quiet space of the temple. Also, on December 3rd (Sat) and 4th (Sun), the “Treasures of Myorenji Temple Treasures Exhibition” will be held in the main hall, which is not usually open to the public. Various cultural assets such as the hanging scroll of the Kano School and the “Rissho Ankoku Ron” written by Koetsu Honami will be on display.
Since 2020, the first summer without restrictions on movement has arrived, and the sea opening and fireworks festivals have been held. 2022 has been a long time since I’ve been able to enjoy the season. The cherry blossoms, the sea, the fresh greenery, the autumn leaves, the festivals, and the nature that makes up the world, and the social activities that make up the world, made me feel grateful.
The gratitude of the world that was normally enjoyed before 2020. I would like to visually contemplate such precious sensations from the passage of time in a single day, and so I am holding this exhibition. One of the world’s only life crafts using glass, a work depicting the world in rich colors. Using natural light and countless mirrors, visitors will be able to appreciate these works in a space that changes over the course of the day. Time is involved in the
appreciation of the world. At first glance, his paintings seem to be stationary, but time interferes with them, giving birth to new colors and light.
It may be possible to reconstruct the rich emotions inside each of us, just like Japan in 2022, when restrictions on movement have been lifted and we can enjoy a vivid world.
