Last Thursday, June 7, Nagornaya gallery has launched an exhibition to celebrate the Year of Japan. The exhibit is partnered with the State Museum of Oriental Peoples' Art and Russian calligraphy artists, and features works by a well-renowned Japanese calligrapher Morimoto Ryuseki.
“If seen as an artistic material, paper falls under the “area of pure ideas”, says Nina Ostrun, the exhibition supervisor and author of books about origami. “The paper lets you do more than just contemplate, but also create space ideas”.
According to the event team, the exhibit will serve as a kind of guide to the artistic world, where the authors achieve top expression through as much as paper, ink, natural materials, and light and shade. A combination of simple and complex, transparency and symbolism is what can define the Japanese art of calligraphy and origami.
“Visitors and artists will become co-authors, while the perception of space, diving into this fantastic universe of paper, will prove a discovery for everyone”, the team says.
To be more specific, the exhibit will feature 9 works from the Museum of Oriental Peoples’ Arts collection.
