Shifts in Japanese Materiality

Curated by Bic Tieu

February 2 – March 17, 2018

Shifts in Japanese Materiality is an exhibition of contemporary design practice which considers the changing nature of materiality in Japanese object-making culture.

The exhibition highlights the porosity of Japanese design and craft processes in a contemporary context through the work of experimental Japanese and Australian designers. From lacquerware and ceramics through to jewellery, the works will explore the changing creative practices and material landscape born out of cross-cultural dialogue and transnational influences.

By illuminating the relationships between materials, processes, training, and contemporary practice, this exhibition shares a contemporary narrative of Japanese materiality. Exhibiting designers include Julie Bartholomew (ceramics), Guy Keulemans (object), Rui Kikuchi (jewellery), Kyoko Hashimoto (jewellery), Liam Mugavin (furniture), Yusuke Takemura (glass), and Bic Tieu (jewellery & object).

Curated by Bic Tieu
Presented by The Japan Foundation, Sydney as part of the Sydney Design Festival and Art Month Sydney.
