Makoto Yamaguchi | The Philosophy of Oribe | A Solo Exhibition

17 February 2023 - 04 March 2023


A solo exhibition of new work from one of Japan's most exciting contemporary artists.

'The Philosophy of Oribe' will provide the opportunity to explore the origins and modern day interpretations of the 16th Century artistic direction which set out to move aesthetics from austere to experimental and expressive.

With statement, sculptural, ikebana, teawares and sakewares making up the exhibition it will be an unparalleled opportunity in Europe to view and add pieces to any serious Japanese collection.

The exhibition will go live online at 7pm on Friday, 17th February 2023 and open in the gallery at 3pm on Saturday, February 18th 2023.

Mr Yamaguchi will be attending the opening.

Note to prospective purchasers:  

At launch all exhibits wil be made available to purchase online and the sytem will automatically add a shipping charge at time of purchase.  Due to the weight of larger pieces in this show it may be necessary for us to approch the purchaser post sale to adjust the shipping charges to their destination.  Shipping charges are always passed on at cost to minimise the cost of sending works.

Wooden boxes (Tomobako) for pieces in Yamamguchi's repertoire that normally have a box will be made and signed by him after the launch of the show and sent seperately at a future date once they have been made and sent to us from Japan.
