We will hold the Sogetsu Annual Exhibition this year for the first time in two years after it was cancelled last year due to the effects of the novel coronavirus infection. To prevent any spread of infection, we will take thorough measures and with safety in mind.
The year 2021 also marks the 20th anniversary of the Iemoto’s succession. Accordingly, there will be a special area (for arranging flowers in vases made by the Iemoto) and a photo ikebana area that takes into account the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
Together with the Iemoto’s solo exhibition in the Sogetsu Kaikan Annex Atelier, the end of 2021 promises to be brightly and gloriously colored with ikebana.

Ahead of the exhibition, Iemoto's work has been created at the front entrance of Sogetsu Kaikan.

Message from Iemoto Akane Teshigahara

“Flowers become human in ikebana.”
As Sofu Teshigahara said, ikebana exactly embodies what we feel and think in our mind.
Look at myself, know myself, and express myself through flowers.
I believe that the repetition of this process is what makes ikebana possible.
Since we are in this suffocating time, I want you to unleash yourself fully into your work.
I sincerely look forward to seeing the story of each and every one of you reflected in the plants.
