With a focus on the Ginza district, which could be described as a symbol of something “Tokyo-like” in modern Japan, organizers visited places called “Ginza” not only in Tokyo but all over the country; and by connecting the stories encountered there across time and locale, the attempt was to think about Tokyo and Japan in the future from an accumulation of little stories from across the country.

Kaori Endo
Born in Osaka Japan 1989.Obtained a bachelor’s degree in textiles from the Okinawa Prefectural University of Arts in 2013. In 2016, graduated from Ars Shimura, a school run by Shimura Fukumi, a Living National Treasure for tsumugi (pongee) weaving. Based in Okinawa, Tohoku and other regions in Japan, use weaving and dyeing to unpack the political relations rooted in the crafts, histories, and livelihoods within each place. At its core, my practice is about expanding the potential of crafts; I produce materials like rags, parachutes, and sails to performatively trace the vitality of textiles and people through my body.
Recent exhibitions include the 13th shiseido art egg (2019; Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo, Japan), for which won the art egg prize, and Welcome, Stranger, to this Place (2021; The University Art Museum, Tokyo University of the Arts, Japan).
