fiche technique


Boro: The Art of Necessity tells the story of artistry born from hardship. It traces history and memories through patched and mended fabrics - a Japanese textile culture where no scrap of material is wasted, and where economical creations were passed down between the generations. The book contains photo documentation of key pieces from the collection of folklorist, archaeologist and ethnologist Chuzaburo Tanaka (1933-2013).

Curatorial and theoretical texts survey the history of boro as textiles, but also examine boro's changing social, economic and aesthetic status. Published in collaboration with the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities, Stockholm, Sweden. English and Swedish editions available.
