During the Meiji Period, Tenshin Okakura established modern Japanese art with his companions against the nation’s drive to modernization. In contrast to his reputation as a heroic art scholar, his book “The Book of Tea” manifest simplistic aesthetics that celebrates “simplicity,” “interval,” and “transience” in the existence of humans and objects– in consonance with nature. Rokkakudo is architecture that Tenshin built for meditation in his last years. Inside the space, Suda Yoshihiro with aspiration to creating a space of comfort and ease, will install wooden sculptures of wild grass and flower. This exhibition space resonates with the East Asian aesthetics that Tenshin wanted to bequeath through generations.
