Affirming a very personal style, geometric and abstract, Kunihiko Moriguchi is now elevated to a “living national treasure”. She selected for this exhibition, nearly thirty of her kimonos, first made in 1966 to the one specifically designed for this retrospective. Subtle and rigorous, his works on Japanese paper made in the same technique Yuzen are also proof of the search for a certain perfection.
Finally, collaborations with Mitsukoshi department stores and the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres show that it has successfully managed to apply its graphics research for embodying everyday media, shopping bags or coffee cup. Kunihiko Moriguchi invites us to search for “hidden order” in the geometric structure of these works intimately inspired by nature and time cycles.
Exhibition from November 16 to December 17, 2016 at the House of Culture of Japan to Paris.
