Chiharu Sakazaki "Where the Penguins Are" Exhibition 2015

I designed the exhibition of Mr. Chiharu Sakazaki, who was a classmate of the design department of Tokyo University of the Arts. Mr. Sakazaki is a picture book writer and illustrator who works on characters such as SUICA's Penguin and Chiba-kun of JR East.

Holding a solo exhibition in the presentation room of the Tokyo University of the Arts Design Department was also the first attempt, and it was an exhibition that inspired active students.

I want to make 95 silkscreen works centered on penguins look like a picture book instead of showing them on the wall, and I want to put each one on one table and make it look like a forest of illustrations. I arranged them so that they face different directions. The height of the table is also set in 3 steps, and the space is designed to look like a natural tree so that the space does not become hard.

The penguin footprints drawn by Mr. Sakazaki are also incorporated as a play element as a sign to guide you to the exhibition hall.

Many people visited the space, which is usually not accessible to the general public.
