Shigeru Uchida

SHIKIMI, Three Nijo-Daime

'89 Nov.17-Dec.16

This exhibition, entitled SHIKIMI, or threshold, features three teahouses, each design according to the concepts of "shin","gyo",both of which are exhibited indoors, and "so" exhibited outdoors. Although each differs from the other with respect to construction materials, all three share the same stylistic concept. Drawings depicting their development hang on the walls. Uchida is remarkable for his ability to go beyond interiors and extend his activities into a number of directions, demonstrating a fascinating versatility even within the condensed spacial medium of the teahouse.
