Risshun, which falls in early February, is the first day of spring in the traditional Japanese calendar. According to the East Calendar used since ancient times, Risshun marks the beginning of spring and the year. We usually say Spring breeze melts the ice” to express the early feeling of spring like these days. If we can perceive delicately such transition, we will discover a new unordinary world while having a good feeling about the future. Although time passes by so fast in our ordinary life.

O-Jewel holds the exhibition “Sign of Spring by Makiami”.“Makiami” is a Stockholm-based art/design unit by Maki Okamoto and Ami Izaki. This is their first exhibition in Japan.

立春。日本の旧暦においては1年の始まりです。今くらいの時期を、東風凍を解く いう言葉で表現します。日々慌ただしく過ぎてゆく中で、ふとした季節の移り変わりに気づく瞬間、なにか予感のようなもの、そんなことを大切に細やかに生き ていけたらまた違う風景があなたの目の前に広がり始めるかもしれません。スウェーデン、ストックホルムで活躍中のアート/デザインユニット 岡本真希、井崎亜美 “Makiami”の初の日本でのお披露目です。
