About the event

ALLU is pleased to present Japanese antiques and photo exhibition. Japanʼs traditional crafts, designs, and household items are beautiful keepsakes that mark moments in time of Japanese daily life. However, their perceived value has changed over time. Therefore, we decided to work with three collaborator artists Marilou Daube, Priya Kishore, Cara Piazza who can shed light on their inherent beauty. They created new ways of displaying and using these objects to present a renewed sense of value. ALLU thinks about the lifecycle of everyday things and proposes “neo-upcycling” as an ALLU antiques project.

Exhibition hours:

December 9 - 24

Wednesday - Sunday


We are looking forward to seeing you at the exhibition, which will also include an opening reception and Chanoyu Week event.
