Kohyama has played a very unique and significant role in reviving the use of the traditional Japanese 'Anagama' wood firing kiln, as he was the first potter in Shigaraki to build such a kiln since the Middle Ages. He is also a contemporary master of the ancient practice of Sueki, a method that originated in southern China and which accounts for his unglazed yet glassy surface textures.

Group of who? Canada's vision of Impressionism

A.K. Prakash in an interview with The Globe and Mail

Toronto-based Ash Prakash is, at 68, one of the most appetitive and knowledgeable collectors of what one auction house used to call “important Canadian art” in the country. His is a connoisseurship cultivated over more than three decades, exercised with considerable discretion, not to mention resourcefulness and resources, both his own and those of the wealthy clients he’s served as adviser and dealer. Prakash has always thought big – he’s been a major mover in recent efforts to heighten appreciation of Emily Carr, the Group of Seven and Tom Thomson “in foreign parts” – but even acolytes and aficionados are likely to be amazed by the ambition and heft of his latest project. It’s an 800-or-so-page, fully illustrated hardcover book, weighing almost five kilograms, called Impressionism in Canada: A Journey of Rediscovery – nothing less than Prakash’s heroic attempt to fully weave Canada’s contributions into the great narrative of Impressionism. Recently, associates spoke with the author about his monument. – James Adams

Tokens of the Path

Exhibition in the Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich

The exhibition Tokens of the Path. Japanese Devotional and Pilgrimage Images in the Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich presents the collection of Wilfried Spinner (1854-1918) to the public for the first time.

On behalf of his return from an East Asian mission, the Swiss pastor brought back to Europe around eighty religious scrolls, which have only very recently become objects of academic-ethnological exploration in the West as well as in Japan itself. The diverse content of the Devotional and Pilgrimage Images draws an impressive picture of the encounter of religious trends and their hybrid forms in late nineteenth-century Japan - on view until 17.5.15 in Zurich (CH).

The correspondent publication presents the technical, social and religious aspects of the scrolls and explains their significance in rites and pilgrimages in Japan at the time and today.

Ann Wolff - Persona

On view at Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, Munich

The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung dedicates the second project in its exhibition series MASTER | MEISTER to the German-Swedish artist Ann Wolff (b. 1937). Its focus is on those sculptures that Ann Wolff created in the last five years specifically for this exhibition. On view in the garden is a new aluminum sculpture, older works as well as pastel drawings.

Ann Wolff is one of the most important and striking artists to use the expressive diversity of the material glass in a new and virtuoso manner. Continually exploring the existential questions of being human is an important and fundamental driving force for her work.

The exhibition is on view until 12.6.2015 in Munich. For a glimpse at Ann Wolff's oeuvre please follow this link
