JAPANESE PAPER GARDEN

Park Hotel Tokyo 10th Anniversary, NAOKI TAKENOUCHI Exhibition

Washi is traditionally made Japanese paper.
It is soft yet durable and has a unique feel which is why is has been used in traditional Japanese paintings and prints for centuries.
Its ability to control humidity makes it ideal in the hot climate of Japan and it is used widely in Japanese clothing and construction as well as furniture and the many types of sliding doors.
It is deeply rooted in Japanese culture and tradition but is also currently to be found in many warps of life all over the world as a trusted natural material.
In the next edition of ART colours we will be exploring this incredible natural material after its transformation in print through an exhibition of the creative works of Naoki Takenouchi.
This autumn will see the 10th anniversary of Park Hotel Tokyo and in conjunction with our new concept Infinite time and space amid cognizant Japanese beauty and the Atrium Garden in the Skies we hope the beauty of the washi can be fully appreciated.
The contrast of the modern Atrium space which houses our 30 meter high projection imagery every evening and the traditional art work should provide for an interesting experience.
We invite you to relax this autumn season in our Japanese Paper Garden.
