Kanagawa gallery walk

It has become a pleasant season when you want to take a leisurely walk.
It's a cloudy sky, but it's a calm day. I thought, "Let's go there," and headed to Teraya-cho, Aoba-ku, Yokohama. It is also known as the temple hometown and village, and it is a green area conservation area where you can still see firefly.
When you get off the bus and walk in the countryside for a while, you can see the building with the air of Totoro.
Actually, it is a very modern gallery and cafe, "Teraya Studio".

Various exhibitions such as art, fashion, crafts, and sometimes rakugo are held here.
When I looked into it, the knit of colorful and mysterious composition was floating in a simple space.
When I sew between knits, it seems to be wrapped in a rhythmic sound.

The artist who was in the exhibition is Yoko Takeshita who lives in Oita. A graduate of the Tokyo University of the Arts oil graduate, she has created a unique knit that she considers to be an installation where her painting "walks out of the city."

He knew that knitwear was a self-study, and his happy memories of knitting with his mother in his childhood are working.
Also, he says that he values the improvisational style of spinning colors and materials that feel sympathy from time to time. Combined with the collage of textiles that I drew myself, it's already art to wear.

At first glance it seems difficult to wear, but it is strange when you look through the sleeves. Surprisingly wearable Isn't it stupid? What's more, the freedom to be released somehow begins to grow. You can rotate the skirt 360 ° and decide the front depending on the mood of the day. The top and bottom of the tops can be turned upside down to change the look of the outfit.

Takeshita-san's knitwear first-timers and repeaters, young and old, old and new But exciting. It's addictive to experience the fun of opening new creative doors inside you that you haven't noticed yet? !
Despite being clothes, what was unfolding in front of me was "moving paintings," an installation that the artist intended.
"Yoko Takeshita's World Exhibition" that touches the depth of "wearing". It is held until May 6th.

Now, after having enjoyed for a while, have lunch at the cafe. A pleasant feeling of fresh green that looks beautiful even in the overcast sky!

The menu on this day was appetizers such as colorful bean and orange salad, squid and celery ginger marinade, croquette of beef and Aoyama pepper, sauteed sardines and spring vegetables. It also comes with homemade bread, desserts, and drinks, making it a generous volume.

The pesticide-free vegetables that we grow ourselves have a solid taste that is full of love. Aoyama Pepper's croquette seems to have restored the taste of the mother of Hiromi Sakagami, a gallery artist.

When my stomach was completely satisfied and I was about to leave, Mr. Sakagami said, "I'm going to pick up vegetables in the field, so let's go with him."

Sunny lettuce, garland chrysanthemum, arugula, etc. are growing well near the gallery. From now on, tomatoes will be popular. "alt =" "width =" 1024 "height =" 766 "/>
"I'm more embarrassed than my surroundings, but I'm embarrassed ..." He cheered me and appreciated the fresh vegetables.

"Value the time that flows and the time that does not flow"
It was a day when I was fully immersed in this word that it was the theme of the Teraya studio.
