In Japan that extends from the north to the south there still exist a wide variety of plants
due to the difference in climate. By utilizing the technology of plant fiber collection
that has been inherited with various ideas and ingenuity since ancient times.

南北に長い国土を持つ日本ではその気候の違いから多種多様な植物が存在します。
太古の昔から人類は過酷な気候下で繊維の栽培採集を行い、様々なアイデアと工夫で技術を継承してきました。

In recent years, MIKA YAJIMA has made a transformation from folk art materials to the modern arts
returning to the original self-cultivated plant fiber material
gathered in her birth place Kochi Prefecture that continues from her art college days.

近年アーティストは大学時代より細々と続けてきた、生まれ故郷高知での自家栽培・採取により
採り貯めた植物繊維素材を基に、民芸染織を現代アートへ変容させる試みを始めています。
