At times, she is smiling and talking to someone around her as if she is dreaming. At other times, she is alone, deep in her own inner world. Kudo's gaze wanders after something that is reflected only in her mind. Is it a happy image that fills her mind? Or is it to avoid reflecting pain and sorrow in her mind? Or is it to keep pain and sorrow out of my mind?
Kudo's work has an endlessness to it, as if it were created through meditation. I wonder if she is aware that she is creating something right now. When she draws, when she sews, or when she is doing "something" that I don't understand. There is a mysterious air in her work that makes you suddenly feel such questions.
A collaboration with a fan brand 「FANO」, which is designed using recycled paper from origami cranes donated to Hiroshima. It is filled with thoughts of peace that transcend time and culture and are passed down from generation to generation.
One-thousand paper cranes are sent from all over the world, not to mention Japan. The number of origami cranes is 10 milliona year, weighing 10tons. This is an initiative started in Hiroshima to digest the thoughts of peace contained in paper cranes. The paper cranes, reborn as「FANO」, will send a breeze of peace to the world.
