Opening Reception 4/26
Miki Kajita -Dream papercutting of japan-
In 2008, Miki found the paper pattern(dyeing stencil of the kimono) in a curio-store.
The paper pattern was very beautiful, but was torn a little.
She intended to restore it.
And she began to study the ＫＩＲＩＥ（paper-cutting）
Her hobby was paper-cutting. One day she thought to make an original work and created a butterfly of the dreamworld.
She was born in Izumo-shi, Simane, Japan, where has a lot of Japanese myths.
Her grandmother said. ”We have our world. And there is the world of god, too. There is the world of the ghost, too. Therefore we must not enter their world without permission. And you should understand another world." She was interested.
Her image is another world.
You will watch her work. And you will think in various ways.
Her work does not have a title. Her work does not have an answer. Therefore you should make an answer with yourself.
A person dies when cut by another person with a cutter. The paper is the same, too. Life is born when she makes the KIRIE.
She has life in a work by cutting paper.
There are life and death in her work.
