Artist’s Book Exhibition
The Book: Vol.3
Time: 16-28 April 2018
Location: Gallery Saoh, Tokyo, Japan
Curator: Director Mrs. Yoshiko Yokojima
During my visit in Tokyo, together with an artist Koichi Kiyono I have visited the Gallery Saoh. The Gallery is situated in the centre of Tokyo, in the first floor, and has beautiful space for the exhibitions. In the Gallery was installed the artist’s book exhibition “The Book: Vol.3”.
Here, in the Gallery Saoh, I met my friends, Japanese artists. Few of them several times participated with wonderful artist’s books in the “International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius”, like Toshihiro Hattori, Yuko Ebina, Ryoko Adachi, Yuko Wada. It was great to meet very kind director of the Gallery Saoh and curator of the artist’s book exhibition Mrs. Yoshiko Yokojima, to meet other artist’s book creators, to see beautiful artist’s books and to talk with artists.
In the Gallery Saoh were exhibited artist’s books and artist’s book-objects of Ryoko Adachi, Yuko Ebina, Toshihiro Hattori, Jin Hirosawa, Kazumi Ohgose, Yoko Takahashi, Yuko Wada & Kestutis Vasiliunas.
I love Tokyo, wonderful town, where you feel yourself very good, safe and where are so calm.
