Every day until Sat 26 Jun 2021
Details:
A traditional Japanese craft with a modern twist! The travelling Contemporary Wood-Carved Netsuke exhibition is currently touring across Australia and will be on display in Sydney from June 4 – 26, 2021 at The Japan Foundation Gallery.

Netsuke are small carvings that were used as toggles to hold various items in place on obi sash worn with the kimono. Created when kimono culture flourished during the Edo period (1603-1868), netsuke began as functional pieces to prevent suspended containers from falling to the ground has evolved into small but highly creative carvings.

This travelling exhibition showcases contemporary netsuke carved of wood by living netsuke carvers in Japan, plus netsuke created by contemporary artists such as Izumi Kato. It also includes wooden netsuke that visitors may touch. Through this exhibition, visitors will appreciate the sophisticated skills and playful minds behind contemporary netsuke as well as its formal beauty and contemporaneity.
