BOX AND CRATE – Mitsuru Koga Exhibition

Friday, August 10 – September 9, 2012

Boxes are moving sculptures…created by everyone. -Koga, “Warehouse”

There is hidden beauty in a cardboard box which comes from its utilitarian aesthetic. Even though Koga’s boxes look manufactured, they are in fact created by hand with exacting precision.
The works are somewhere in between 2D and 3D, mass production and craft.

Tortoise owner, Takuhiro Shinomoto, will be exhibiting his “crate” furniture of similar character in collaboration with Mitsuru Koga.
