About the Exhibition

Hitogata is a three-dimensional art depicting the human form that has long existed in Japan since ancient times. This figure, which is a rich reflection of its creator’s thoughts and feelings, has been regarded as a “doll” in the field of craft and as a “sculpture” in the domain of fine art. Today, however, a new world is being created through the artistic expression of the human body in a variety of ways that transcend the boundaries of any single field. This exhibition introduces forms of hitogata by contemporary artists from the collections of the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa and the National Crafts Museum, and explores their newness.
