Reiko Sudo’s love for fabric is rooted in her deep respect for history – and for the artisans who transform threads into her breathtaking designs. As the Japanese textile artist opens her first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, she reveals the hidden processes and extraordinary creative techniques behind groundbreaking textiles such as Feather Flurries and Jellyfish.
Curated by CHAT’s co-director Takahashi Mizuki and with artistic direction by Saito Seiichi of Rhizomatiks Architecture, along with French designer and museographer Adrien Gardère, the exhibition opens a door into Sudo’s creative world where she balances old and new, heritage and innovation.
At its heart is an exploration of the meaning of craftsmanship and the scope of Sudo’s creativity, going far beyond the conventional to the ambitious and inspirational.
Sudo Reiko: Making NUNO Textiles runs at CHAT until 23 February 2020 – The Mills, 45 Pak Tin Par Street, Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong – 11:00am-7:00pm (Closed on Tuesdays) – Free Admission
