The Black and The Red House

Homage to that which has been lost In the vacant workshop of the last

Shiwaku carpenter and descendant of the Shiwaku maritime force, the artist presents an installation made from things left in the house and traditional crafts from Thailand and Japan, with an emphasis on the colors black and red. The artist sees these colors as essential features of Japanese aesthetics, suggesting charcoal and flowers of good fortune.
The entrance is decorated with a Thai flower wreath, and traditional kihd pillows are placed inside for visitors to use. The work is envisioned as a space where people can encounter lost crafts and traditional culture.
Thai cuisine will be offered at another site on the island.
