Washi paper art by Koji Shibazaki and Mikako Suzuki

13. May – 29. October 2023

In cooperation with the German-Japanese Society in Passau e.V., the Oberhausmuseum is hosting an exhibition of outstanding paper art from Japan. Artists Koji Shibazaki and Mikako Suzuki are presenting filigree objects made from traditional, handmade Japanese paper („washi“).

In accordance with the Japanese concept that only darkness makes beauty shine, a visit to the darkened exhibition rooms becomes an unforgettable aesthetic experience of light and shadow. Sliding paper doors (“shojis“) made especially for the exhibition envelop the fortress‘ s historic Knights‘ Hall in soft light, creating the atmosphere of traditional, aristocratic reception rooms. Here, visitors learn all about the production of washi and how the special paper made its way to Europe.
