Chiars keep on travelling on a concept of which they gather people. In our space COHJU contemporary Kyoto, as the third city in a serise of this exhibition, we show a chair’s dance and small works themed with “Love World”.
Hygge Christmas in sharp chilly Kyoto!
“Hygge” is a danish word means Warm and Fluffy atomoshphere, and danish people set a high value on that word. It sounds like “Hokkori” in Japanese, which people in Kyoto use often. Scandinavian people pass the dark and long night in winter with candle light like “Hygge”. Would you like to make candle holder with Yuko Takada Keller, an artist lives in Denmark? Having conversation about the Christmas in Scandinavia, we take place warm and fun workshop. We are looking forward to your joining then.
