Simon Wright, Director of Programming at Japan House London, joins us from London for this online event.
A small part of Sudō Reiko’s personal collection features in the exhibition in a table-top collage of Japanese textiles from which Reiko draws inspiration for her innovative NUNO designs. With expert insight into aspects of Japanese cultures, Simon take us behind the stories and meanings embodied in the kimono fragments on display.
