KIN - everyday fine objects

CLASKA Gallery & Shop "DO" will be holding a group exhibition of 10 artists - from Japan origin and Sweden origin - titled "KIN".

This exhibition was held last year in Sweden, in celebration of 150 years of relationship between Sweden and Japan. Textile Designer Åsa Pärson gathered 5 artists with Japanese origin who have their practices in Sweden, and the 5 each invited friends to take part.

KIN means "family, relative", and describes the strong feeling of connection between two cultures. Inspired with each other's culture and ways of living, works created based on the Swedish craft philosophy of "Vackrare Vardagsvara = everyday fine objects" will gather at CLASKA.

In textile, glass, paper and ceramic, the works show a variety of expressions - wide and fun - and tells stories about similarities and differences.
