"MUJI CONNECTS ART Exhibition"
ATELIER MUJI GINZA is holding the "MUJI CONNECTS ART Exhibition" from Feb. 26 (Fri.) to Mar. 14 (Sun.). MUJI continues to re-examine the essence of things and search for a "pleasant life" through the creation of products that form the basis of our lives. Art is an embodiment of how we live, and is, in a way, an origin in our lives that MUJI is continually seeking. “MUJI CONNECTS ART” is one of the activities that we have been working on to achieve “Pleasant Life”. It is also a project delivering our message to suggest integrating art into one’s life by connecting people to people, or people to society.
On this first occasion, we will hold an exhibition-sale of 4 artists’ newly completed works in collaboration with the French lithograph workshop “Idem Paris”. All the exhibition pieces will be on sale at ATELIER MUJI GINZA and the MUJI online store. (Limited to 100 pieces each) Using a series of manual processes executed by craftsmen, the beauty of the lithograph derives from the individual atmosphere brought to each print: every one of them becomes almost “one of a kind”. This art form is more accessible to bring into our everyday living, but at the same time we can clearly identify certain traces of human interaction in each work.
Hand-crafted artwork gives us a chance to feel something, at times connecting to or supporting people, even if social structures and ways of living are changing. It will be our pleasure if this exhibition provides an opportunity for all of us in the present to nurture our own energy to carry our lives forward, and to find a way to a bright future.
