The 138th Exhibition Shigeo Fukuda's Poster Supporter November 7 - 29 ,1997

People signal their feelings with their facial expressions. Noh masks and Kabuki make-up transform performers into other people (from old, young, men and women to evil spirits) or other living things (foxes, monkeys, frogs or catfish). To visually express their will more strongly, there is the loud face painting by soccer fans or the body painting of primitive warriors. Based on favorite theory that the theme should reflect the times, "fan" was chosen because of on those going to the World Cup in France and global warming with the Kyoto Global Conference '97. I made 48 works all at once for a hall for 46 B1-sized works. I claimed that quantity gives birth to quality but the undigested, incomplete expressions finally made me sick. "The works are all that count!" I thought and decided to put all my energy into my next show.
