Agenda: June 21 - 27



This week’s feature:
"Direction of Materials" by Soshi Matsunobe at Super Window Project.
Although resembling the lumber storage rack of a carpenter’s workshop, it is apparent that the material on this shelf is not meant to build any furniture. Made from paper, which originates from wood, and accurately printed with an abstracted but essential wood texture, this material gradually dematerializes, transcends itself -- taking us into the realms beyond material reality.
Super Window Project (map) might be a bit difficult to find, so take a taxi (approx. 640 Yen) from Kitayama station and leave it to the driver.

On the Agenda are events in Kyoto - and also in Osaka and Kobe - that I'm interested in and plan to attend.
Although the list isn't meant to be complete, I hope it provides some valuable tips for those interested in art and design in Kansai.
