Japan House London presents its third exhibition, entitled SUBTLE: Delicate or Infinitesimal, the ultimate exploration of Japanese minimalism and the delicate art of paper.

Following hugely successful shows at Japan House’s international sister locations in Los Angeles and São Paulo, SUBTLE intends to reawaken our sense to the limitless possibilities of what can be done with fine paper. On view from 13 November – 24 December 2018, the exhibition presents works designed and crafted from among 15 creators living and working in Japan from diverse disciplines across art, animation, architecture, fashion, graphic design and literature. These unique creations will explore this fascination with paper, highlighting the individual choices of material and the diversity of textures, colours, techniques and applications specific to their creative practice.

The exhibition originates from the 47th Takeo Paper Show, Japan’s only paper industry show, which has been held since 1965. It is known for working with top creators to take up the challenge of bringing out new potential from paper. Many of the innovative creations on display serve to highlight this delicate craft in a modern and contemporary light.  

Curated and directed by HARA Kenya, Chief Creative Director for the global Japan House project, the SUBTLE exhibition explores the influence of Japanese minimalism, inviting visitors to observe each innovative artwork up close and in minute detail.
