Hayashi Hiroko (林裕子展) Exhibition at Gallery Kobo (巷房)

This exhibition (2011/08/01-06) by Hayashi Hiroko (林裕子展) at Gallery Kobo (巷房) consisted of hanging curtains that looked as though they were made of cloth, but turned out to be made from newspaper!  The artist explained that she took full-color newspaper ads, put two of them back-to-back, and then cut them into strips and finally sewed them together for the creations you can see on the promotional card and the photo (below) taken at the exhibition (by me, with the artist's permission).  It seemed amazing that no color was added for these!  A very interesting exhibit!

この展示会は、DM絵葉書と写真のような作品でした。 布見えますが、なんと、新聞紙から作ったらしい! 色付けず、そのままの広告を使って、実に面白かった!
