About the Exhibition

Textile artist, Yunoki Samiro (b. 1922) began to pursue the craft of dyeing immediately after the end of the Second World War, after encountering mingei, or Japanese folk craft. For over seventy years now, he has been working in lavish colors and shapes to portray the little joys that come from everyday interactions with the world and the objects around us. His world of creation doesn’t stop at textiles, either, extending also to picture books, prints, and three-dimensional pieces. In this exhibition, we look at his current activities, including his work based on the twelfth and thirteenth century scrolls Choju-giga [‘Scrolls of Frolicking Animals’], the original of his picture book Ame ni mo makezu [‘Be Not Defeated by the Rain’] and the works in the museum’s collection.
