Onchi Koshiro
恩地孝四郎展

This is the largest-ever retrospective of Koshiro Onchi, the father of abstract art in Japan and one of the leading figures in the modernization of woodblock printing. The exhibition comprises three chapters, and the second chapter is designed as a series of small rooms painted in dark green and rotated at 45 degrees so that viewers can enjoy changes in the viewing sequence while immersing themselves in the world of Onchi’s works. Edges of display cases and openings between the chapters feature 45-degree details in a symbolic way.

日本における抽象美術の父にして木版画近代化の立役者である恩地孝四郎、過去最大規模の回顧展。全3章からなる展覧会の第2章を、45度に振って深緑に彩色した小部屋が連続する展示室として設え、展覧会のシークエンスに変化をもたせつつより作品世界により没頭できる構成とした。展示ケースの縁と章をまたぐ開口部には45度を象徴的に扱ったディテールを採用している。
